Icing Glaze

An icing glaze is one of the simplest things to make in baking and so versatile. You can use it to drizzle over your pastries, danish, cookies... you name it! 

  • 156g (1 1/4 cup) powder/confectioners/icing sugar
  • 3 Tbs milk (or water)
  • *optional 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (the clear kind is best to attain a white glaze)


Stir all ingredients together until you get a nice thick glaze consistency. You may add more sugar if you prefer a thicker glaze or more milk for a thinner more liquid glaze. 
Then simply pour over your favorite dessert or dunk your cookies/cupcakes in it for a beautiful effect! 
Note that the glaze will harden slightly after cooling and resting. 

For a fun twist: try substituting the milk with lemon juice and throw in some lemon or citrus zest and you have yourself a wonderful, fresh and zingy lemon glaze!! I personally love using it for muffins, and cakes. 
Or experiment with other juices for new flavors.
