Has anyone heard of Sugarveil? If not, it’s about the coolest thing ever …next to my Easy Roller… of course;)! There are so many things that can be done using it. What is Sugarveil you ask? Sugarveil is a proprietary sugar blend that when mixed with boiling water can be spread onto a Lace mat or just piped onto any edible project (cake pops included)! When you pipe your Sugarveil you can do it directly on your work surface, OR you can pipe it on to parchment paper and peel it off and apply it after it dries, it bends and twists so you don’t have to be limited to just flat forms:)!! Also if anyone has ever piped “dots” then you know what a pain those are! They always have that point to them… Not using Sugarveil, they just sink right back in and… perfect dots! Exciting right!? My favorite part is the mats you can choose from. My mat has a little doyley in it and I love this one! Once it’s dry you can wrap the entire sheet around the cake, OR cut out the pieces you like and apply just those pieces. As an example you can cut just the doyley’s out and place it on a cookie or it looks really fancy in your tea, or cut out the smallest pieces for cake pops;)!
Here is how it works:
I have mixed my Sugarveil with boiling water (and a little purple food coloring), and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
So here is everything I need to start! My Spreader, the mat, a spatula, and the Sugarveil is pictured below.
Take your spatula and spread a little Sugarveil onto the mat.
Then use the spreader to push the Sugarveil into the lace mold. Make sure to swipe over it a few times for even coverage! When you have it completely covered, wipe the spreader clean and take one final pass over the mat. This makes sure all the intended open areas are open:)
Ta Da! Now you will let this set till it dries! It can take up to a full day to dry (and it will depend on where you put it and where you live on how fast it dries) I have a hard time waiting, so I put mine in the oven at the lowest setting (I think its 200 F) and when it reached that temp I turned it off and just let it sit in there. Guess what?! It was dry in about 20 minutes:)!!
You know its ready when you can bend the first 1/4 inch or so and it comes off like this!
To Release it from the mat, turn it upside down. Take the spreader tool and hold down the lace, then remove it from the mat about 2 inches at a time, replace the spreader tool closer to the mat and pull the mat back again. Repeat until the lace is free! Always pull the mat off the lace NOT the lace off the mat if that makes sense;)!
Here it is! now what to do with it?!
