Serves/Makes:3 cups

  • 3 tbsp (45 ml). meringue powder (level spoonfuls)
  • 4 cups (950 ml) sifted confectioners sugar
  • 6 tbsp (90 ml). water*
  • Meringue powder can be found at most hobby and craft stores in the cake decorating section.
  • When using large counter top mixer or for stiffer icing, use 1 tbsp (15 ml) less water.
  • Beat all ingredients at low speed for 7-10 mins. (10-12 mins at high speed for portable mixer) until icing forms peaks.
  • If are using liquid coloring you may need to reduce your water even more.
  • I recommend using Wilton brand coloring and meringue powder.
  • Their colors are in paste form and will not thin your icing.
  • To dispense the color only dip the end of a toothpick in the color and then run it through the icing.
  • Colors may change after the decorations dry (lighter or darker).
  • These colors are very concentrated and one jar will last a very long time.
  • You can create your decorations on wax paper, let them dry over night and then transfer them to your cake.
  • These decorations can be kept in an air tight container at room temp for months.
  • So, go ahead and make a bunch and store them for last minute desserts.
I took all the Wilton cake decorating courses and love using this icing. Be careful...it isn't a cheap hobby, but it's a whole lotta FUN!
