Celebakes Meringue Powder
Royal Icing (dry hard icing): Into ½ cup cold water, beat ¼ cup meringue powder until stiff peaks form. Scrape the sides of the bowl and completely mix the water and meringue. Gradually add 4 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar until desired consistency is achieved. Add more confectioner’s sugar for stiffer icing. To keep icing soft, add 3 drops of glycerin. A stand mixer provides the best results.
Buttercream Icing: Dissolve ¾ cup of granulated sugar in ½ cup of boiling water. Cool and add ¼ cup of meringue powder and beat to stiff peaks. Stir in 1 pound sifted confectioner’s sugar and beat until mixed well. Mix in 2 to 2½ cups white vegetable shortening.
Egg White Substitute: 2 tsp of meringue powder and 2 tbsp of water equals 1 egg white.
