1/2 cup warm water
1 (16 ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted (4 1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Combine meringue powder, water, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream of tartar in a medium mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined; beat on high speed for 7 to 10 minutes or until mixture is very stiff. When not using icing, keep it covered with clear plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.
