  • One 2-pound bag powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup room temperature water


Step 1

Add the powdered sugar and meringue powder to a mixer bowl and mix for 30 seconds using the paddle attachment. (It's not necessary to sift the sugar beforehand.)

Step 2

Add the vanilla to the water. With the mixer on its lowest setting, slowly add the water/vanilla mixture to the dry ingredients. As the water is added, the icing will become thick and lumpy. Continue adding the remaining water until the mixture reaches a honey-like consistency. At this point, turn the mixer to medium speed for 1 minute. After the first minute, turn the mixer to high speed and mix an additional 2 minutes. Use a spray bottle to get extra powdered sugar off the edges of the mixing bowl. Immediately remove the icing and place in an airtight container.
