Have you ever used reconstituted meringue powder instead of egg whites in a white cake recipe? I hate having all the yolks around...

Any help?

No i haven't..but you can buy small cartons of just egg whites. That's what i do. It's sold in the same area as eggs.

The egg whites in a carton work for me when making SMBC. The cartons say they won't work, but I've never had any problems at all. Love them.
