Makes 1 1/2 cups.

Ingredients

2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons meringue powder
3 tablespoons water
Paste food coloring

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until firm enough to pipe, but still of spreading consistency. Divide into bowls, and tint with food coloring. Cover bowls with a damp cloth to prevent a crust from forming while icing.
