Royal Icing

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

This is the "glue" that holds the tree layers together. We doubled the recipe, reserved some plain white and colored the rest with green food coloring.

3 tablespoons meringue powder
1 pound confectioners' sugar
7 tablespoons warm water

Beat all ingredients with an electric mixer. Turn on high speed and beat for 5 to 10, until the icing stands in straight peaks. This icing dries quickly so keep the bowl covered at all times with a damp cloth.
