This glaze icing recipe, also referred to as cake glaze by many, is a mere two ingredient recipe that is absolutely easy to make. It adds that extra little oomph to desserts with in just a drizzle form and also works wonders as a cake covering.
The icing is in a pourable consistency when just prepared and should be used immediately. Left at room temperature, it will crust and set into an opaque white finishing.
Glaze icing requires only 2 main ingredients, i.e. warm water and icing sugar. The icing is complete with just this 2 ingredients. Add a few drops of lemon juice into it and the whole icing turns into a heavenly citrus-y topping that is absolutely delicious. Try it and you will know!
And as in other cake frosting (except for chocolate based ones), since the base color is opaque, this icing can be colored to just about any color.
170g icing sugar, sifted
2 – 2 ½ tbsp hot water
10 drops of lemon juice (optional)
food coloring (optional)
Place icing sugar in a heat proof bowl. Add hot water to the icing and stir.
Whisk until mixture is smooth and lump free.
Add lemon juice and coloring (optional) and stir well. Remove from heat and use immediately to prevent the icing from crusting.
This amount is sufficient to coat the top of an 8 inch round cake.
Here is how this icing can be used to cover cakes:
1. Cake top only (Glaze as a layer of topping on the cake top)
2. Cake top and side drips
