Helps acheive a smooth finish to butter cream icing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wilton Meringue Powder, 8 oz Can (Kitchen)
I regularly use this in my butter cream icing, and it helps the icing set-up so it's not sticky. If you accidentally bump into your decorated cake, the damage is less noticeable if the icing was made with meringue powder, and many times can be repaired with a tooth pick. Because it takes the stickiness out of the icing, you can achieve a nice smooth top and sides with ease. Before adding the decorative elements, give the plain iced cake a while to dry then you can place a piece of waxed paper under your hand and slide it over the cake to smooth out the icing. Works well on the sides of the cake, too. It gives you a very professional look, removing the lines from the spatula, and I always receive praise on how smooth my icing is. The price on Amazon is also quite a bit lower than my local craft store.

It would be helpful to know how many egg whites are in the 8 oz can. The product can be used in baking, not just icing, so I'd like to see some baking reviews and not just icing and decorating cakes.
