This frosting is easy to make and workwith. It hardens so it is easy to store and stack cookies. It is just sweet enough.


  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 teaspoons meringue powder
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • Food coloring or paste


  • In a small mixing bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, water and meringue powder on low speed just until combined. Beat on high for 4 minutes or until soft peaks form. Add corn syrup; beat 1 minute longer.
  • Tint with food coloring of your choice. Cover frosting with damp paper towels or plastic wrap between uses. Spread and/or pipe frosting on cookies. Let stand until set (I let cookies sit overnight).
  • For Cookie Recipe.
