HI all

I want to make the Whipped Cream Buttercream from the awesome recipe book here
but I have no idea where to even find Meringue powder.
Anything I can substitute for it??
I can make meringues but Im not gonna make em just to crush em for the buttercream.

thanks ahead of time

I don't know where you are located, but you can buy meringue powder at walmart in the wilton isle or at michael's hobby lobby ( i am assuming, we don't have one here.), or at Joanne's. It comes in a little can about the size of baking powder. It basically is a powdered form of egg whites with some other stuff in it.

You can use powered eggs whites if meringue is not available. But as mentioned by others, you can buy it walmart, micheal's, hooby lobby, etc.
