I have decided I might try these over the NFSC as they seem to get good reviews.

I will be decorating with royal icing and plan to use antonia's providing I can find meringue powder here in australia.

Can anyone tell me if I can substitute egg powder for it?

I asked some other questions in my other thread about parchment paper, saran wrap as we don't call them that here I just wanted to confirm what they are.

parchment paper may be baking paper? the kind that you make the paper cones with that you decorate with.

meringue powder, I think you may be able to substitute egg powder but only if its made with the egg whites only.

Seran wrap is plastic cling film. The clear plastic, clingy stuff you wrap around your left overs.

Hello,

Glad wrap is saran wrap. Pavlova egg mix is meringue powder. Parchment is baking powder. I also got a little confused with some of the mix of names. I've used copha instead of crisco but apparently there is a real crisco in the usa store in NSW or Vic.

In US parchment is paper we use to line pans, cookie sheets. Also used to make icing bags with.

LOLOL The site has been down so long I forgot I even put this on and must have been tired as I meant baking paper. So funny when I read the quote with baking powder instead of paper. What a crack up I am hehehe. Sorry for that. icon_lol.gif
