Hello DZH115, I have been searching for a recipe for a meringue frosting using meringue powder. I'm allergic to egg yolks and have a fear of egg whites for frosting. Would you mind sharing your recipe? I've have read and heard a lot of wonderful comments about how wonderful the swiss or italian meringue buttercream tastes. I really want to try this frosting. TIA
