By

Basic glacé icing recipe plus variations and flavoured glace icing recipes

 

This icing recipe is sufficient to cover 10-12 cupcakes or fairy cakes, 24 small biscuits (cookies) or the top of a 20cm/8-inch cake.  If you wish to use the glace icing for piping, such as on gingerbread men or biscuits,  add a little more icing sugar to give a slightly thicker consistency.

Ingredients for basic Glace Icing

100g/4oz Icing Sugar, - sieved
Approx 30ml/2 tbsp Water

 

Instructions how to make basic Glace Icing
 

Instructions

1. Place the sieved icing sugar in a mixing bowl, add the water and any flavouring or colouring and beat until smooth and thick enough to thickly coat the back of a spoon.

 

If you find the mixture is too thin, add  more sieved icing sugar. If it's too thick add more water a few drops at a time as a little liquid goes a long way.
