    It would be nice to have a place on your Martha page to store the recipes and idea's instead of having to print to paper! Also, where would I find meringue powder? O.k. Found the answer Michael's it is.

    Sorry, maybe it wasn't Martha's Royal Icing recipe. I found one from Foodnetwork that uses 2 Tbsp. fresh egg whites and 2 c. icing sugar. Just make sure to use precautions if using fresh egg whites (not if you're pregnant, compromised immunity, etc.) Check the recipe for instructions. Good luck.

    If you can't get meringue powder, Martha also has a recipe for Royal Icing using fresh egg whites that works very well.
