Ingredients
                
1/4 c
meringue powder

1/4 t
salt

3 1/2 ea
+/- sugar, powdered

3/4 c
cool water


Directions
Place the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the cool water, and stir slowly to allow the sugar to dissolve.

Mix on low speed at first, increasing to high speed over several minutes. Beat until the icing is fluffy.

Keep the frosting covered with a damp towel and some plastic wrap until needed.

Divide the frosting into smaller containers and mix with food coloring for several colors.

To use for piping, put a tip in the bottom of a disposable pastry bag. Using a coupler will allow you to change tips with ease.
