Recipe Time

Prep Time:


  • 1 (16-oz.) package powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • Paste food coloring


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer 5 to 6 minutes or until icing is firm enough to pipe, but still of spreading consistency, adding a few drops of additional water if necessary for right consistency. Divide icing into small bowls, and tint each by dipping a wooden pick into paste coloring and stirring it into icing until desired color is reached. Icing dries quickly; keep it covered at all times.
  2. Spoon icing into zip-top plastic freezer bags, and snip a small hole in 1 corner of each bag.
