Royal Icing (with meringue powder)
- 2 cups - Domino® Confectioners Sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons - meringue powder
- 3 tablespoons - warm water
- Assorted food coloring
In a bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat confectioners' sugar, meringue powder and warm water until stiff peaks form, about 5-7 minutes. If icing is too thick, add a couple drops of water. If icing is too thin, add additional confectioners' sugar, and continue beating until desired consistency. Tint icing with desired food coloring. Using pastry bag with decorator tip, decorate as desired.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
Meringue powder is available in specialty stores wherever cake-decorating equipment is sold. Use icing immediately. Keep covered with a damp cloth or with plastic wrap to prevent drying.
