 Ingredients List

  • -------------------------------SIFT TOGETHER-------------------------------
  • 1 pn Salt icecream salt is finer)
  • 6 tb Meringue powder
  • 2 c Granulated sugar


1 c Hot water

1/2 c Warmed glucose*

1 ts Or more flavorings**

*Set a measuring cup in hot water & add glucose. Stir until warm and thin.
Add as directed above. **Add almond extract and <clear> vanilla to taste.
Add this only at the end, to prevent icing from breaking down. Don't add
butter flavor, may contain fat! Using "fine" sugar & salt is not necassary
as long as you aren't going to press the icing through very fine decorating
tips <#1,0,00, or 000>. I use regular. This icing is like the insides of
marshmallows without the coating. It is the same as 7-minute icing without
the cooking time. ***Be sure all utensils used are grease-free. Any bit of
grease will break the icing down to soup.
Very good-tasting. Great to use this type when adding coconut because it
never crusts. Great to decorate with. Makes wonderful flowers, but
remember, they don't crust. I have made flowers with it & they would crust
~ after a few weeks, but every time it rained, they got sticky again. This
icing is the type used by professionals who do lots of big figure-piped
characters, since it is sooo smooth & especially since it is sooo
light-weight. Dolores McCann, Oxford OH
