thanks for your wonderful icing recipe. I and some help went crazy cookie decorating today for a baby shower on saturday. I loved decorating with it. Thos who have tasted it, love it too. Anyway, i read in another post you use Meringue powder that is flavored?! What brand do you use? where to get it? i have only seen and use Wilton's. It's kinda gross when i'm mixing it, don't like the smell.
Kat maybe try PM'ing Antonia, not sure how often she is on but she might not find this thread immediately, JMO
I unfortunately don't know the brand I use, as I buy it in big $25
1.5 kilogram bags from my supplier. There's no label at all. She won't tell me of course, because then I would bypass her and purchase from the factory!
Has anyone tried the CK Brand powder? Maybe that's what I'm using??!!
It has a gorgeous vanilla scent and flavour though!
I have CK also and it smells wonderful!! I bought mine on ebay for a 1lb bag for $7.50
after posting i was thinking the same thing... maybe it's a CK product. i have candyland crafts near home, and nycake near work. I'm gonna try picking some up from either store and see how it goes. wilton brand is really starting to gross me out. thanks!!
more cookies to bake today. kids wanna decorate.
So you can't just go to your local grocery store and buy meringue powder?
I wish mine carried meringue powder. I had to go to Williams-Sonoma and it is expensive. I have since found it at my local cake decorating store, but I think CK's is cheaper.
Wal Mart and Michaels both have Wiltons meringue powder. I've been using the CK from a local cake decorating store though because it's cheaper.
Okay, so those of you using the CK brand....is it already scented/flavoured with a strong vanilla?
Thanks for the tip, I will give it a try.
