Did you use distilled water? I almost overlooked that when I made a batch.

You buy it - in the ironing section !! LOL

 

You can add a few drops of White food colouring to it

 

If you are in Australia - look out for Flexi Paste!  so much better than Sugarveil and so many uses

Vicki, if SugarVeil is not white white, it just means that it needs to be re-beat. Place it under the mixer and beat it for a few minutes or more (you can't overbeat it). If it has been refrigerated, first allow it to come to room temp, then rebeat (and you can also add a few drops of water for spreadability, if desired).

 

On SugarVeil Icing's Facebook page are some good tips for working with SugarVeil: https://www.facebook.com/SugarVeilicing/notes. And while you are there, take a look at our most recent post of how to make seersucker using SugarVeil and the Confectionery Comb:

thanks michelle,

but the product is very white, up until it is on the cake and drying, then it starts to go yellowy...Its almost like it is ok until it starts to dry, or when the air gets to it in the drying process.

Hmmm...will have to think on this one, and whether it might be water-related. Historically, off-white SugarVeil has had to do with not beating well just before spreading.

Don't blame the product when it is more than likely 'operator error'
