Meringue PowderCelebakes® Meringue Powder is great for making your own royal icing, stabilizing buttercream icing or creating fluffy meringue cookies. Meringue powder can also be used as an egg white substitute in a variety of baking and decorating recipes! Premium ingredients, made in the USA.
Royal Icing (dry hard icing): Into ½ cup cold water, beat ¼ cup meringue powder until stiff peaks form. Scrape the sides of the bowl and completely mix the water and meringue. Gradually add 4 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar until desired consistency is achieved. Add more confectioner’s sugar for stiffer icing. To keep icing soft, add 3 drops of glycerin. A stand mixer provides the best results.
Buttercream Icing: Dissolve ¾ cup of granulated sugar in ½ cup boiling water. Cool and add ¼ cup of meringue powder and beat to stiff peaks. Stir in 1 pound sifted confectioner’s sugar and beat until mixed well. Mix in 2 to 2½ cups white vegetable shortening.
Meringue Cookies: Dissolve 1 cup granulated sugar into ½ cup boiling water until completely dissolved. Add 1/3 cup meringue powder and beat into high stiff peaks. Fold in 1 tsp of vanilla or any other desired flavor or color. Pipe onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheets. Bake at 250°F for 40-45 minutes until set. Meringue is done when they can be easily lifted off of the pan and bottoms are dry.
Egg White Substitute: 2 tsp of meringue powder and 2 tbsp of water equals 1 egg white.
