In this recipe for Royal Icing, the meringue powder replaces egg whites. Great for assembling gingerbread houses, cookie trains, cookie cottages, any edible food project.

It may just be me, but I didn't like the flavor from the meringue powder at all. I used this to frost some ghost cookies for Halloween, then switched to another recipe after tasting it. I may save the rest and try it for assembling a gingerbread house. It does look fine and whips us nicely. Susan
