Hi all! Today seems to be a day of questions for me, lol. This is actually an offshoot of a thread I started earlier re-garding Nirvana style of decorating.

I'm gonna be doing some run-sugar work, and would like your opinion on which is strongest..........

Royal Icing w/meringue powder

Royal Icing w/egg white

Color Flow

I'm gonna attempt a poll, so hold on, lol.

Either the Color Flow mix (which is straight, uncut dessicated egg whites) or royal icing made with fresh egg whites will be the strongest.

Meringue powder has additional ingredients in it besides egg whites so using it per the recipe's instructions yields less egg white in the recipe.

It's not a matter of's a fact. Poll unnecessary. icon_smile.gif

Thank you both so much! I actually read today in one of the many books I have that the egg white royal and color flow are about the same strength once dried, but the color flow dries quicker.
