AWhere are you located? That may help people be able to answer if it is a regional thing.

AAre you sure it's a boiled icing? Might it just be an American buttercream?

You can just use egg whites in place of meringue powder. Just have to do stove top method and not microwave

AThe best that you can use is egg white to replace meringue powder :)
