Directions:
Sift confectioner's sugar and meringue powder into a large mixing bowl, set aside. Cream shortening, flavoring(s) and milk or water. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until all ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together. Blend an additional 5 minutes or so on high until creamy. This will give you a stiff consistency which is perfect for decorating. Blend in 1 tablespoon water or milk per cup to thin for easier spreading.

Personal Notes:
I use this icing for cakes and cookies. It is best to use the clear vanilla which can be found in the Wilton aisle because your frosting is stark white and colors are truer when tinted. This icing is also less sweet tasting than canned frosting and stores as well.
