Royal Icing (with Meringue Powder)
about 1 1/2 cups icing
- 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 to 7 minutes. If icing is too thick, add a couple of drops of water. If icing is too thin, add additional confectioners' sugar; continue beating until desired consistency.
Tint icing with desired food coloring. Using pastry bag with decorator tip, decorate as desired.
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.
