  • 3 tablespoons Wilton Meringue Powder
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons water plus more as needed
  • Food coloring, optional


  • Place meringue powder, powdered sugar, and 5 tablespoons water in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat at medium speed until icing forms peaks and loses its glossy sheen, about 7-10 minutes.
  • Add a teeny bit of water as needed for thinner frosting.
  • Keep frosting covered with a damp towel. This stuff dries fast and hard!
