I’ve been trying a new no cook meringue buttercream that uses Wilton Meringue powder instead of egg whites.

It’s very smooth and holds it’s shape well but has a tangy flavour. My friends keep asking if the buttercream has lemon, that’s almost how it tastes!

Has anyone had this with a meringue butter cream or have a no-cook meringue buttercream recipe without this tangy flavour? I use Wilton meringue powder for my cookies with no tangy flavour.

I’d love any thoughts or tips. Thanks!

you can make swiss meringue with raw egg whites — just make it exactly like the cooked kind without cooking — duff goldman in fact uses this icing — i’ve made it before to use on a dummy —

re the tangy ness: you add enough vanilla?
