is there any way I can make royal icing without meringue powder? I just got an itch to bake v-day cookies and no meringue powder in the pantry! It's pouring down rain & 9pm and def not going to the store...Thanks!
I just looked on martha stewarts website and it says i can use 2 large egg whites to replace 5 tbsp meringue powder!!!!!!
You can, as long as you don't have any worries about salmonella That's why most people use meringue powder, because raw egg is not always safe to eat.
i have taken toba garrets classes. she has you to make royal icing with egg whites. i think nick lodge does also.. i have so many famous peoples books.. that use egg whites for making royal icing.. hth
I have always used 3 large egg whites at room temp, 1 Lb PS (sifted) & 1/2 tsp Cream of Tarter. I just recently started using the meringue powder.
You can also make a glace instead. It taste better and doesn't get rock hard. I'm at work but I think it's just PS, milk, and corn syrup, check out the recipe section on cc
was gonna say that too! Glace is easy to make, no fancy ingredients, and no egg whites.
