in the sense it's fully published and out there in the news cycle

 

not that it establishes the standard for everyone to follow

 

but yeah raw egg whites

Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. icon_redface.gif But we all know that there are people who think it must be ok if it's on tv. Like that commercial with the French model - bonjour. 

 

And I suppose, if I think about it, people use royal icing made with raw egg whites all the time. Or did, before someone (I'm guessing an American) came up with meringue powder.

i don't use it like i said

 

it was on tv and i was kinda shocked by it

 

but there were no disclaimers and folks ate the cakes frosted with it

 

thank you for the apology

 

I was addicted to the Hokey Pokey, but I turned myself around.

This is the cake I ended up making

 

It does not have a very finished professional look but I was happy with it considering that it was my first time ever making and decorating a cake!

WOW!!! It looks GREAT! Yes, there have been "more finished" looking cakes, but I have seen much worse coming from "professional" bakers. This is really fantastic for a first, or 50th cake. I can't wait to see how good you get once the decorating bug gets his chompers in you, and you get real serious ;-)

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I think that almost anything can be done with the right help and advice, I only started making cakes 10 months ago as I wanted to make one for my dads 50th. This was my first ever cake, I had done general baking before but no decorating what so ever, I research a lot, I had no idea about any different icings, had never heard of modelling pastes or flower pastes, but thanks to a lot of good advice this was the end result of my first cake

Would love to see how your cake turned out icon_smile.gif

I was going to comment "scroll to the end, and you'll see it!" But then, I scrolled to the end and saw that you saw it ;-)

You can buy pasteurized egg whites. I haven't seen his recipe but im guessing it could be substituted and still not heated.
