Lace molds for sugarveil - Page 2

There are lots of cheap imitation 'Sugarveil' lace mats flooding the marketplace from China (and other outlets that are sourcing from China)  Some of them are under $10 each

Be warned...... they are NOT all created equal !

They are NOT level..... so when you scrape over your mix to spread it into the mould you will get pieces that are thinner and some areas that don't even fill in

 

It makes for very 'unpredictable' results - breakages etc

 

For anybody that has tried to do this and knows the frustration it will cause..... they would think that the $50-odd dollars for a GOOD mould would be worth it

Bluehue - & everyone else reading this post,

 

Be careful of vendors that sugarveil has on their website. I got a company from their site that is one of their overseas vendors and I made an order in January and have to date received nothing. Any attempt by me to call or email the company has gone south, the phone is no longer connected, emails being ignored. The woman who took my order and sent me confirmation when I made it no longer works there. I called Sugarveil and a really nice sympathetic woman answered my call. She said she'd get back to me which she did, she emailed to say that sugarveil takes no responsibility for overseas vendors on their site. This went back and forth for a while & I have still not gotten anywhere. She told me to take it up with the Better Business Bureau. I told her that as she knows  Sugarveil is an American company, I live in France and the vendor recommended by their website is in Belgium so basically it's impossible. 

I am so disappointed, and en plus they still had not taken that vendor off their list.

 

I'm not dissing the sugarveil products as I love them but I do feel very let down by them (the company).

The mold in your photo is from CrystalCandy.com. They are located in S. Africa and they make stunning molds.  You can use them with Sugarveil or you can purchase their Crystal Lace product which is similar to the Sugarveil powder.  The molds run around $50 - $60 but the shipping is very expensive.  If you plan to make a purchase, I would suggest getting as many as you can afford at one time to get the most out of the $75 shipping fee (to the US).  There is a company in Texas that sells the Crystal Candy molds but they charge about $75 per mold. Working with Sugarveil is not difficult once you get the hang of it and these molds are very easy to use (easier to use than the Sugarveil brand).  I have both brands along with some molds from a French company (found on bakedeco.com).  Sugarveil is an expensive endeavor, but Wow what stunning cakes you can create in a very short period of time.

Sugarveil cannot be expected to take responsibility for what their distributers/retailers do or don't do.

 

 

 

I mean, if I order JEM cutters from ABC cake store online and the next day they go bankrupt - I can't hold JEM responsible.

I totally agree...the goal of any company is to gain mass market awareness and the only way to do that is to take on distributors.  International distributors are a different beast altogether, its not in your country so you cant go by personal experience or references.  As a company you hope that you are bringing on responsible distributors of your product internationally, but once it leaves your facility, it is literally out of your hands.

I want these molds so badly, but have never had anyone ask for one, so it would just be silly to get them, at this point! icon_cry.gif

I've  had this site bookmarked for awhile - CAKE ART  http://www.allaboutcakeart.com/catalog.php?category=6&x=17&y=6

 

They sell this mat - currently out of stock.  I also don't know anything about the company except I have seen a couple of U-tube videos from them on CAKE LACE.

They have some beautiful mats.

I love what I do and do what I love

A little less than Sugarveil.  I sent an email to the Texas location to find out if they are going to replenish their stock - many of the mats have been out of stock since I found the site.

FYI - I just heard back from All About Cake Art - They will be at the ICES convention in KY.  Their mats are due to be replenished next week.

Jan is wonderful.  The personal service is amazing.  She sent me all her tips because I've never used sugarveil.  I'll get my order next week - can't wait!

Yes, yes, same here! I love her customer service because how many times do you get personal assistance when you buy a product?! I followed her instructions and my lace came out beautiful! I'm ready to place another order since she said she'll be getting new 'ribbon mats' -- I want to experiment with those too!! icon_smile.gif
