Directions

1.

Whisk water and meringue powder with a mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Add sugar, and beat until icing holds a ribbonlike trail on the surface for 5 seconds when beater is raised. (Icing should be the consistency of glue.)

2.

Transfer two-thirds of the white icing to the squeeze bottle with the larger hole or to the pastry bag fitted with the larger tip.

3.

Divide remaining icing in half, and tint one half using red food coloring and the other half using the 2 blue food colorings until desired colors are achieved.

4.

Transfer red and blue icings to the remaining 2 squeeze bottles or the pastry bags fitted with the smaller tips.
