I am trying to make royal icing. I hate royal icing so I never make it but I need to use it to glue some things together. Anyway, so I go to make it following wilton's recipe with meringue powder and it turns out like gumpaste! So I think to myself, well maybe I did it wrong or the meringue powder is gone bad. I check the container for an expiration date but there is none. I make it AGAIN! And it turns out like gumpaste. It is then that it occurs to me that I've added gumtex instead of meringue powder..... twice! Dumbass. YOu'd think when I checked for an expiration date seeing the recipe for gumpaste would have clued me in.
Don't feel bad. I was making meringue and could not for the life of me figure out why it never "meringued."
Yeah, I used gumpaste powder instead of meringue.
I wish CK would alter the packaging just a bit. Well, other than the name printed clearly on the front . . .
that is funny. Thanks for the laugh, i needed it. But remember this.. you DID figure it out.
I did figure it out. That's true! But I wasted 15 minutes and two lbs powdered sugar in the process. I can't believe I did it twice!
