How to make it

  • Beat egg white until frothy using whisk. Gradually add 3 cups of powdered sugar, mixing until very thick and smooth. Add water to thin and get desired consistency.
  • Divide icing into small bowls. Add food coloring, one drop at a time until you get the color you want. If necessary, add more water by teaspoonfuls, mixing well after each addition, until desired consistency is reached.
  • *1 Tbsp. meringue powder can be substituted for egg white. Add to the powdered sugar and use additional 2 Tbsp. of warm water.

    How lovely these turned out, babs! :) I love the peppermint one...have seen candy canes, of course, but the mint is new to me. It's so simple, but I like it. :)

    Hi michelle. No, it is thinner than that and then dries to a hard surface. But you cannot shape anything out of it.

    Hi henrie. It should - you may need to give it a stir now and then, and if you aren't going to use it right away, cover with some plastic wrap.
