Could you elaborate on using it?? How did it ice, like regular bc?? Does the brown sugar make it gritty?? Sorry I've never heard of this before so I'm super interested in knowing more!

I LOVE meringue icings but I wasn't crazy about the brown sugar one. . .a matter of taste so you would have to try it. Martha Stewart has the one I used on her site. The sugar is used to make a syrup so it's not gritty.

Thanks much, I did bounce up the Martha Stewart version and it has some good reviews. I'll give it a try.

It acts just like a regular IMBC, just a different flavor. If you like brown sugar in other stuff, you'll probably like this, too. You don't have to switch recipes, either; just substitute brown sugar for the white sugar in whatever recipe you usually use.

Hi, i make the brown sugar smbc. It is very good. It is not gritty, because of heating the sugar and egg whites to a certain temp. Sometimes i use this brown sugar smbc and add home made caramel to it. So good. hth The caramel recipe is from jodief from this site. So good!!!
