If you love decorating roll-out cookies or piping flowers, chances are you’ve used meringue powder to make your icing. Meringue powder is a must for making royal icing, meringue cookies and stabilizing marshmallow or whipped cream frosting.

But how does it work? What’s the magic formula for using meringue powder in place of egg whites? Well, let’s crack into it!


Made mostly of dried egg whites, meringue powder is a baking substitute that you can use instead of raw egg whites. It’s used mostly in making meringue, frosting and royal icing.


It is designed as a substitute for recipes that call for egg whites beaten to stiff peaks. It’s also used to stabilize frostings and other treats to prevent drooping.


Use 2 teaspoons of meringue powder and 2 tablespoons water to substitute 1 egg white.

We suggest not using meringue powder as a baking substitute for eggs in a recipe. If you’re making cake batter, brownies, cookies or breads, you’re better off using real eggs. Meringue powder is meant as a substitute for eggs that need to be beaten to stiff peaks. Because of this, some of the ingredients in meringue powder may actually prevent baked goods from turning out as planned.

Royal Icing (Stiff Consistency)

  • 3 tablespoons Wilton Meringue Powder
  • 4 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
  • 5 tablespoons water

In large bowl, beat all ingredients at medium speed of standard mixer until icing forms peaks and loses its sheen, 7-10 minutes. If using a hand mixer, beat at high speed 10-12 minutes. If peaks are not forming, increase the mixer speed and continue to beat.

To prevent drying, cover the bowl with a damp cloth while working with icing.

Makes about 2 3/4 cups of icing.

Meringue Recipe

    • ¼ cup Cold Water
    • ⅓ cup Granulated Sugar
    • ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract 
    • 1 tablespoon meringue powder

    In a large bowl, combine meringue powder, water, vanilla and 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon of the sugar. Whip at high speed for 5 minutes.

    Gradually add the rest of the sugar and whip at high speed for 5 more minutes until meringue is stiff and dry.
    Bake and use according to your recipe.
