I've used Sugar Veil. It has some good applications, but I don't think it would be best for ribbons. I mean, the ribbons would be thin for sure, and flexible (think rubbery-flexible), but you also have to consider drying time when using Sugar Veil.....something that may or may not fit in to your production schedule.

I know what you mean about thick ribbons made out of fondant not looking good.....they look bulky and ugly. When some of my assistants started rolling them too thick, I would just say to them they need to be thinner.....it's just a matter of guidance and instruction I think. Hand crank pasta machines are also great for rolling out fondant (and modeling chocolate) ribbons with a nice even thickness.....or thinness as the case may be.

You can certainly give the SugarVeil a shot......it takes a little getting used to to work with.....just follow the instructions carefully. It's only drawback is there is a certain amount of drying time involved, and it's more unstable in humidity than fondant. Fondant is quicker to work with.....saves time.
