Recipe adapted from Lila Loa - http://www.lilaloa.com/2011/03/end-all-for-chocolate-cookies-recipe.html
- 2 lbs confectioner's sugar
- 5 tbsp meringue powder
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup water
Mix the flavoring into half the water.
Using a mixer, combine the meringue powder and powdered sugar.
Slowly add the water and flavoring into the dry ingredients. The icing will then become very thick.
Next add the remaining water and mix on medium speed and whip until thick and fluffy. Stop mixing when the icing forms a soft peak.
You can add more water as needed to reach the desired piping consistency.
