I made my own wedding cake 9 years ago and used Royal Icing to make drop flowers. That was the last time I needed Meringue Powder and have kept it in the refrigerator all this time. Is it still good after all this time?

Meringue Powder is freshest if used within 24 months. Even when stored in the refrigerator, it won’t work quite as well as it should after that amount of time. I would suggest you buy a fresh can if you plan on making Royal Icing.
