- If your recipe requires 1/2 teaspoon (2.4 g) of cream tartar, use 1/2 tsp (2.4 g) white scallop.
- You may need to add a little sugar to taste if the mixture is too bitter.
- Try baking powder if you need a pouring agent. If your recipe calls for baking soda and cream tartar, replace it for baking soda. Baking powder is another effective punch that you can use in a pinch. Use 1 tsp (14.9 g) baking powder to replace 1/3 tsp (1.65 g) baking powder and 2/3 tsp (3.3 g) cream tartar. 
- Baking powder is essentially a mixture of baking powder and cream of tartar, so this will not change your recipe much at all.

- Use buttermilk if your recipe requires a lot of dairy. If you make a dish with lots of milk or cream, like pies or puddings, you can use buttermilk to add acidity and replicate cream with tartar benefits. Remove 1/2 cup (118.3 ml) of liquid for each 1/4 teaspoon (1.2 g) of tartar cream and then add 1/2 cup (118.3 ml) of buttermilk instead. 
- Buttermilk is an acidic liquid that remains after core butter. It is often used for baking pancakes and birthday cakes.
- In some cases, you can replace yogurt with buttermilk. Add milk to your yogurt until it has the same consistency as buttermilk, then use the same buttermilk proportions to replace your cream of tartar.
- Skip the cream of tartar if you make frostings or syrup. If you make sugar-coated toppings including glaze, syrup and glaze, leave out the cream of tartar rather than trying to find a substitute. Your topping can crystallize and become hard, but you can easily heat it in the microwave or hob to soften it. 
- Do this if you are topping cookies, freezing a cake or filling donuts, for example.
