Homemade sugar veil recipe

Easy - for beginners



  • You can increase the amount of ingredients if you need more of it.
  • Here goes…
  • 1 Tbsp Tylose
  • 1/4 cup BOILING Water
  • 1Tbsp confectioner sugar
  • 2 level tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp meringue powder/egg white powder
  • 1/2 tsp. corn syrup
  • Pinch of white icing color or one of your choice color


Add Tylose to boiling water and with a small fork mix until you get a clear mixture. When mix is clear, add confectioner sugar and mix, and then add your cornstarch and mix again. Add the meringue powder and mix again. Then add your corn syrup. Add colouring after this has been mixed.

This mix can be kept in the refrigerator for a week. To work with it leave it at room temperature. Once you have made the lace, you can store it in a plastic zip lock bag. To restore the elasticity, just place a damp kitchen towel on top, but not too long… keep checking it. Note: one of the tips in using sugarveil is that you must not use any water that has been chemically softened, or with any added minerals. They suggest you use only pure water no minerals or fluoride in it. Try using distilled water or water made by the Gerber Company called PURE. Also, make sure that your home humidity is not too high or too low.
