Wilton says meringue powder to make cake rise high???? - Page 3

post #31 of 53
What else is meringue powder used for? (I've just found some here in Australia).

I've found a few recipes for buttercream that use it....any other suggestions?

Thanks lovelies!

Meringue powder can be used instead of egg whites: royal icing, some recipes of BC.

My question is the same as Happygrl's...can you use the Just Whites found in the baking aisle for the same things as meringue powder?

I am hoping to find the same answer. This is exciting to hear since the past two cakes I have made did not rise high enough for me. I didn't have a problem with others. So I had assumed it was because I switched brands of cake mixes. CC is so wonderful for advice!!!!

Is Wilton the only brand of Meringue powder or is there other brands?

Jenn777 says in page two of this same thread, that she uses powdered egg whites that she buys at a local cake supply store.
Check the previous page and find jenn's reply.

Could you just add an extra egg white would that do the same thing (Pet Chickens in full production right now!! got lots of eggs) icon_surprised.gif

I'm sorry, I didn't get the directions. But at what point do you add the meringue powder? icon_eek.gif

Thanx again icon_razz.gificon_razz.gificon_razz.gificon_razz.gificon_razz.gif

I simply add the Meringue Powder to the boxed cake mix and mix it in. I also sift my boxed cake mix. I find that it becomes so smooth and I have no holes in the cake after they bake like I used to before I sifted. May just be a coincidence but I really think it helps.

So I tried it. My cakes did rise a bit higher - but I know better - I need bake even strips! They ended up quite domed because I was going for a thinner layer. No big deal - I used 1 box for 2 9" layers so they'll be approx 1" tall versus the last cake I did that was about 1/2 inch or so. Hey, now I have cake scraps!

(The 4 thin layers are gonna be 1 cake - choc-banana with banana pecan alternating iced with choc-banana BC.)

Thank you Chellebelle70 for asking about this and thanks everyone for the tip. I had to make two different cakes today and used meringue powder in them and it really helped. The only thing is I used 1 tsp instead of 1 TB (didn't remember right). Thanks! LouAnn
