Frosting glaze for cut out cookiesPosted: December 12, 2008 | |
I am not a fan of royal icing at all. I have never liked how hard and tasteless it is. I am in search of a good glaze that decorates well, but hardens, yet stays soft underneath! Does that make sense?? Hardens on the outside only, and still tastes great! After searching and searching, the girls on the WC board shared this recipe with me!
It’s a super easy glaze. Just mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1-2 tbs of water. Add it 1/2 tbs at a time until it gets to the consistency you want, it won’t take much! You can also add a little almond extract or vanilla extract, but it will thin it out, so add it with the water. It dries really pretty and kind of hard but still soft to your bite.
Remember if you add extract or liquid food coloring it will thin it, so add any liquids sparingly or it’ll get too thin.
I use a regular little kid’s watercolor paintbrush to apply it for details.
