So Dawn which recipe do you use? I emailed the people from Golda's and asked for the ingrdients in the McCalls merengue powder and this is the list she gave me.

meringue powder has the
following ingredients:
icing sugar, egg albumen, maltodextrin, glucose solids, cream of tartar,
gum tragacanth, vanillin
Although we're not familiar with the flavouring claim to which you refer,
the McCalls meringue powder does contain vanillin (one of the flavouring
compounds in pure vanilla), which the Wilton meringue powder does not.

So this could be the difference, let's give it a try folks..... thumbs_up.gif Oh this was for the 1.5 K whatever if that makes a difference.?????

could you use less meringue powder?
I have heard of people making vanilla sugar by placing a vanilla bean in it. I wonder if you could do that with meringue powder or the powder sugar?

[quote="debster"]So Dawn which recipe do you use?

I use Antonia's recipe, but substitute 2tsp of water with almond flavoring, I do use wilton's MP, but made a note of which one Antonia uses (read it on a previous thread) just incase I run into a problem& need to switch.

So far, so good for me...Good Luck!

I generally use Wilton's meringue powder (easily accessible and inexpensive) but about two or three months ago I did get a very bad batch -- tasted really strange, smelled weird and wouldn't set up! No, not all meringue powders are created equal! icon_rolleyes.gif

I must say I have only used Wilton's. That being said it is because I get it cheap with the local craft store coupons. I have never had a problem so far. But I will try the alternatives since I too find it bitter until it has hardened. I will forward to that.

I, too, normally use Wilton, and it does have a terrible smell! Almost rancid smelling at times! I finally bought some from Country Kitchen SweetArt, so I am anxious for this can of Wilton to be gone so I can open the CK and see if it's better!

Thanks for helping us, CakeDiva73. I have a question for you: how much do you normally put it in your icing? I think I'm going to try your method someday and see how well it taste and smell.

I'm glad I got that information when I did CakeDiva! I was in the middle of a CK order when you said that, so I ordered a bottle to see how I like it!! Thanks again!
