I wanted to know if anyone ever used meringue powder in a cake as a substitution for egg whites. I am making a cake for a friend's birthday and got the powder to stiffen my icing. On the can it says you can use it in place of egg whites. The cake is a boxed mix. Have you ever used this and if so, how did it turn out??

Yes, I've reconstituted the meringue powder to use as eggs whites for white cakes and the WASC cake. icon_smile.gif (Worked fine.)

I'd highly recommend the expanded flavors version of the WASC cake recipe:

Sometimes when I want my cakes to rise a little bit higher I add in some a couple teaspoons of meringue in the cake batter with the regular eggs.
