Glacé Frosting

Glacé icing is a smooth, runny, glossy icing made by beating icing sugar into water. Often flavourings such as orange, lemon, chocolate or coffee are added to this very simple icing. Glacé icing is typically used to coat biscuits or fairy cakes and has the advantage of setting hard

  • 250g icing sugar, sifted

  • 30ml water

  1. Mix the icing sugar and water until a smooth paste of pouring consistency is formed. You may need to add a little more water, but only add a drop or 2 at a time and remember food colouring also contains liquid. 

  2. Colour your icing to the desired colours and use to decorate your favourite mini/ or big cupcakes, topped with 100’s and 1000’s.
