I was reading in a Wilton Decorating book that a hint to make boxed cake rise a little higher is to put 1 to 2 tblsp. of meringue powder in the mix. Has anyone out there tried this? If so, how much did you use? Thanks for your imput!
My Wilton instructor told us this trick, too. I have put a tablespoon in my mix cakes, and I can't tell that much of a difference, but then I just started doing it when the humidity around here started to get really bad, so maybe it has helped? I wonder if anyone else has done this?
HI Nancy. I always use 1 tablespoon of Meringue Powder or Just Whites in a box of cake mix. It really does help it to rise better. Works like a charm for me. I'd never make a cake without it......
I use 1 heaping Tbs. most of the time. Sometimes I will add an extra egg and that works too.
Thanks to all of you for your imput! I'm going to try it on my next cake!
