I made my first batch of Sugarveil last night - followed the directions exactly - 4 minutes on high using my KitchenAid stand mixer - but my product seems too stiff (both immediately after mixing and 18 hrs later). It spreads great using various templates made from mylar, and pipes very well using traditional methods but it is IMPOSSIBLE to pipe using the piping unit sold by Sugarveil - the pressure just pops out the inserted cartridge, even when the Sugarveil is mixed again with a little water. The screeching sound of the Sugarveil piping machine is rather unpleasant as well.
Do you think it was mixed too long or too fast using the KitchenAid stand mixer? Better to use a hand mixer?
