Hi All !!

This is probably a stupid question, but I am going to ask it anyway. I am absolutely terrible at seperating egg whites and yolks from an egg!!! Are egg whites that you can buy in a small carton at your local wal-mart the same thing as egg whites from a real egg? Is there anything special about these egg whites in a carton??

I am wanting to make some royal icing and cake batter. Both call for egg whites only. I was looking for a shortcut....

Thank you,

Check the ingredients on the package. Some are not - some are.
You can also buy dry egg white powder. Wilton calls it Colorflow mix. And there is a product in grocery stores called Just Whites. Each will tell you how much liquid is needed to equal an egg white.
Wilton's recipe for royal icing is made with Meringue powder but you can use either MP or the Colorflow mix interchangeably.
