    Got it!
    Try this... make up a batch of poured fondant AKA petit four icing.
    Really simple.
    It won't dry as firm as RI but that is easily fixed by dropping a square of almond bark in and letting it melt then slowly stir to combine (if you create bubbles they are almost impossible to smooth out).

    It looks interesting but there are sure a wide variety of methods used from powdered to regular sugar. I like the idea of regular sugar because I find it less sickening sweet and most recipes using it (like cooked icing) seem to use a lot less. I will certainly look into this, interesting. I still think there has got to be a way to incorporate meringue powder into something like this in some way in order to add body like RI. Thanks for the info!

    I find that when I make my cookies less sweet, I can tolerate the RI more.
