What is meringue powder and where can I buy it? I found a recipe on this site for cookie icing I would like to try but not sure about that ingredient. Thank you so much!

Any place that offers Wilton cake dec classes should sell it as well. Bulk Barn is in Canada (assuming you are from States since you mention hobby lobby). The bulk barn stuff I am not thrilled with as the texture of the powder is that of powdered milk, lumpy not fine like the Wilton stuff.
