Make it here;
1 lb (4 cups powdered sugar, what we in the biz call 10x, cuz its been sifted 10 times, get it?)
1/4 cup meringue powder
1/2 cold water
Mix the meringue powder along with the 1/2 cup of water in a standing mixer, (for me it's my trusty kitchen aide) beat until peaks form. Add 4 cups of sifted (you only have to sift if you are using a container of powdered sugar that has already been open, if it is a sealed unopened bag, there isn't a need to sift, which I love) powdered sugar to the meringue and beat to desired consistency. You may have to add either more water or powdered sugar depending upon what you want to deal with.
