Hi, I've been watching your show for the past several months and I LOVE IT. I'm only in Grade 10, but I really enjoy decorating cakes. When making royal icing, is there any substitute for Meringue Powder, because I am not able to buy it where I live.

Any powdered egg white product can be substituted. One of the more popular brand names is "Just Whites" – look for it in the baking section of your grocery store.
