Basic Icing Sugar Glaze Recipe
Basic Icing Sugar Glaze

Preparation time: a few minutes
Cooking time: none

Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

This is the "mirror" glaze that you pour over a cake. It spreads easily to a smooth coating.

You can substitute coffee, tropical fruit juice, etc. for  the lemon or orange juice or water.

Add a few drops of food coloring if desired.

- icing sugar
- lemon or orange juice or water
  1. Place the icing sugar in a bowl and add a little liquid.
  2. Stir with a wooden spoon, adding a little more liquid as required to achieve the proper consistency. Never try to inverse the process or you'll use far too much icing sugar.

The glaze should not be too runny - just thin enough to spread easily. It will harden very quickly.
