In a medium mixing bowl beat the butter with an electric mixer on
medium to high speed about 30 seconds.
Combine all ingredients, except food colors, in mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Increase speed to high and heat 5 minutes, until thick and smooth, adding up to 1 tablespoon more cold water for piping consistency, if necessary.
To tint: Paste colors provide the most vibrant hues, and because they are concentrated, you won't need to use much. Dab paste into icing with toothpick. Mix with spoon until well blended, gradually adding dabs of paste if necessary for desired color.
*Note: Meringue powder is available at supermarkets or specialty baking stores.
