Meringue Powder Royal Frosting
In a bowl, beat meringue powder with water until combined. Gradually beat in icing sugar until very stiff, about 4 minutes. Cover with damp cloth to prevent drying out. Makes about 1 - 1 1/2 cups (375 ml).
Drying time, during the application of the frosting on the Styrofoam is approximately 1/2 hour after frosting is applied. Allow the bottom third layer to harden so that you have a solid foundation for the middle and top portions of the tree.
This frosting will act as a coating in which to secure these Christmas candies.
Christmas Candies and Jelly Belly jelly beans are used to decorate this tree.
Bottom Third (Begin with the bottom layer first)
Base - Coated in Espresso Jelly Belly beans. Apply the frosting lightly and evenly to the Christmas tree form. Add Jelly Belly jelly beans and Christmas candy to make a pattern of your choice.
