Cake Tips - Adding Meringue Powder
My Wilton instructor suggests 1-2 tbls per box mix. I have been using the 2tbls. I noticed more results with Betty Crocker versus Duncan Hines. The only Duncan Hines mixes I use now are Orange and Strawberry, just don't like how they bake up compared to Betty Crocker must be due to the difference in water/oil amounts. Betty Crocker is 1/13 cup water and 1/3 cup oil, Duncan Hines is 1 1/4 cup water 1/2 cup oil. But I did notice on the inside of the box it had instructions for a tier cake with the same amounts as Betty Crocker. I will have to try it on my next orange cake to see if that helps any. Shannon
I use 1 Tbs. per mix. Cake is still very moist, more volume, & firmer.
