- 2 c
- confectioner's sugar
- 5 Tbsp
- warm water
- 2 tsp
- meringue powder
- 1/2 tsp
- vanilla (you will add other extracts also, read below)
- food coloring
- white copy paper & food safe squeeze bottles
2In a medium bowl combine all ingredients and beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for 5-6 minutes. *Icing should fall in ribbon-like streams when dipping spoon into bowl and allowing it to fall back off the spoon into the bowl. The ribbon should sit on surface for about 3 seconds before melting back into the mixture. (I mixed it for 6 minutes and it was perfect)
3Divide icing mixture into 3 small bowls, tint one with yellow, one with blue and one with red food coloring. Each bowl will need two drops of food coloring to get colors as shown in the picture above. I added a small amount of lemon extract to the yellow mixture, small amount of almond extract to the blue, and to the red, which will end up PINK...I added raspberry extract. You want to achieve yellow, pink and blue dots.
