4 cups powdered sugar (about 1 pound)
5 Tablespoons warm water (more if needed)
3 Tablespoons meringue powder

Directions:
Beat the powdered sugar, water and meringue powder in a large bowl until icing forms peaks. It will take about 7­-10 minutes at low speed with a heavy­duty mixer and 10­-12 minutes at high speed with a handheld mixer. It should be fairly thick.

Once you've made the frosting, transfer to bowls for adding colors and then transfer into your frosting bag.

Next outline your cookie with a stiffer frosting and a fine frosting tip (I used a #2 tip). This border creates a dam to make sure the "flood" icing doesn't go off the sides of the cookies.

Mix in 1 teaspoon of water to your frosting to make the flood icing. The consistency will be a thick liquid like honey. Then using a icing bottle, spread the frosting inside the "outlined" cookie.

Use a small knife or toothpick to spread the frosting. You can also use the tooth pick to pop any bubbles.

Allow cookies to dry over night before packaging or adding more designs.
