I want to try out his gumpaste recipe..What I am wanting to know is if anyone has used meringue powder or powdered egg whites in this recipe instead of the actual fresh egg?? If so was it ok?? I know a few people who will substitute meringue powder for egg whites when baking certain things and say there is no difference so not sure if in this case it would work??? TIA for any help..[/i]

I've never tried it but I don't think it would work because the egg whites are your liquid in the recipe. But maybe someone else knows more about it.

I've never tried that - but the meringue powder container tells you how much to mix with how much water to substitute for egg whites. I would think it would be fine.
