I can tell you that I used it on a Pumpkin Layer cake last week for our son's birthday dinner and our guests went wild over it.
Its really light-it was just an iced, 3 layer cake with Fall candies and jimmies scattered across the top-so while I didn't decorate/make flowers, etc. with it-it worked like a dream to ice the cake.

Infact, my brother called this morning while shopping and asked me what was the name of that "meringue stuff" that you needed for that recipe as he wants to make it.

great! I just tried it but the meriunge never formed a peak, icon_sad.gif so I didn't waste my high ratio on it. was that because I had oil on my mixer bowl/wisk? it's a KA so that's the only reason I could think of. any idea?

I've never had that problem but what you suggest could be highly likely.
Wash the bowl and whisk really well with a good liquid detergent and hot water and then rinse them very well in hot water, or run through a complete dishwasher cycle.

Try it again-I think you'll like it!

I wash my cake utensils in dish soap and white vinegar. This will remove all traces of oil.
