I used sugarveil for the first time last weekend. I found it quite easy to do. Fix mix as per the instructions. I left this to sit for about 1/2 hour and then i was eager to use it. Lay your mat on a flat board as it will be easier to move to leave it somewhere to dry. When you are ready give the sugarveil a bit of a stir as it goes sort of “marshmallowy” once its been sitting. Scoop a bit out onto your mat using a spatula, then using the spatula (i found this ea...

Well, what can I say?! I uploaded my Rainbow Brite cake to my facebook page and in the past 4 hours has received 140 likes, 18 shares and tonnes of lovely comments! I’m on cloud 9!
