I have an awesome chocolate buttercream recipe...it requires one egg yolk....but recently one of my best friends got pregnant...and I started thinking about safety. Does anyone know of an alternative for egg yolks? I know there are safe products to use as an alternative to the egg whites. Any help would be appreciated!

What if you were to buy the pasteurized eggs-in-the-shell, and took the yolk from those?

I'm not sure if powdered egg yolk would work the same as a fresh egg yolk would. Montanabaker, just purchase the pasturized in shell eggs. They are safe and you cannot tell a difference between them and "regular" shell eggs in cooking/baking.

They reconstitute just fine... same as powdered egg whites and powdered milks. You just have to use the reconstituted right away. They work beautifully.
