  • 2 lb. powdered/confectioners sugar
  • 8 T. meringue powder
  • 1 T. clear vanilla or favorite clear colored flavor
  • 1/2 c. (+ 2 T optional) water
  • 1/2 c. corn syrup


  • Add powdered sugar to mixing bowl.  I never sift personally.
  • In separate small bowl, combine meringue powder, vanilla and 1/4 c. water.  Whisk until foamy.
  • On low setting, slowly poor wet mixture into powdered sugar.  As it combines, slowly add more water if needed until it forms a smooth thick paste.  Add in corn syrup while mixing.
  • Increase speed to medium high and mix no more than three minutes
  • More water can be added a little at a time based on what consistency you desire.  It is best to add this at the end with food coloring.
