Ingredients

  • 1

    box confectioners' sugar (1 pound)

  • 5

    tablespoons meringue powder, or 2 large egg whites

  • Note: If you're decorating cookies for children, pregnant women, or anyone with compromised immune systems, use meringue powder, found in the baking aisle of most markets, instead of raw egg whites.

Directions

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar and meringue powder. Mixing on low speed, add a small amount of water - start with 1 tablespoon (additional water can be added until you reach the desired consistency). For a thinner consistency, usually used for flooding, add more water. A thicker consistency is generally used for outlining and adding details. Mix until icing holds a ribbonlike trail on the surface of the mixture for 5 seconds when you raise the paddle.
