Glaze Icing Recipe
Prep time
Total time
a smooth glaze icing that is great on cookies or a cake, drizzled over a bundt and over scones, madeleines, drop cookies. The perfect accompaniment to lots of desserts.
Recipe type: icing
Cuisine: dessert
Serves: 1 1/2 cups
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water (more may be needed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or flavor of your choice)
  • a few drops of food coloring (I use Americolor gel colors)
  1. Mix the powdered sugar along with corn syrup and water and extract until it's smooth and creamy.
  2. The glaze worked best when it's was not runny. I ran my spatula through the icing and drew a line, it took about 5 seconds for it to fill back in where I drew the line. Adjust the water so it's fluid, but not runny.
  3. Extract and food coloring are both in liquid/gel form, so adjust accordingly if you add more, you may need more powdered sugar.
