So how do we get our frosting so perfect? Here's the easy recipe and video tutorial for our meringue frosting.
Meringue Frosting Recipe
You must add your own confectionery sugar and water. Use a hand held mixer or stand mixer.
- 2 pounds of confectionery sugar (not included in kit)
- 1 package of meringue powder (included)
- 1/2 cup of tap water
- Additional water (1/4 cup) for thinning out the frosting
With a mixer, beat meringue powder and 1/2 cup water until foamy and thick (around 1 minute). Slowly add confectionery sugar, scraping sides of bowl often. Add remaining 1/4 cup water and mix, scraping sides of bowl, until smooth and glossy.
Place around 1/3 cup of frosting in 4 small separate bowls (not included). Cover remaining frosting in mixing bowl with plastic wrap to prevent from hardening.
Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl and stir to create your own custom colors. Fill pastry bags (included) with colored frostings.
Place cookies on a cookie sheet (not included) and begin frosting!
Outline the cookies first with the frosting in the bags by clipping a small hole at the bottom of the tip. Refill your small bowls with the remainder of the frosting in the mixing bowl and add your desired food coloring. Add a few drops of water to each bowl and stir to thin out frosting if frosting is too thick for your liking.
Add a heaping teaspoon of frosting to the center of each cookie. Frost cookies with a plastic knife or the back of a spoon. Spread frosting around to the piped sides. Add decorations. Be creative and use your pastry bags to decorate the tops of each cookie as well. Let cookies dry 30 minutes or more and enjoy! Your kit contains an extra package of meringue powder and plenty of food coloring and decorations to make an additional batch of frosting if you like more frosting on your cookies. Your extra frosting can be stored in your fridge for up to 1 week or freeze for up to one month. Thaw before using.
