Yields: 1 1/2 cups
Step 1

In a bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat powdered sugar, meringue powder and warm water until stiff peaks form, about 5 to 7 minutes. 

Step 2

If icing is too thick, add a couple of drops of water. If icing is too thin, add additional powdered sugar; continue beating until desired consistency.

Step 3

Tint icing with desired food coloring. Using pastry bag with decorator tip, decorate as desired.

Additional Tips
  • Meringue powder is available in specialty stores wherever cake decorating equipment is sold.
  • Use royal icing immediately. Keep covered with a damp cloth or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
