Glace Icing

  • Total Time

    5m

Glace Icing is smooth, runny and glossy and is ideal for sponges, fairy cakes, biscuits, cookies and finger buns. It sets hard and so it also makes an ideal edible glue (for those fiddly Gingerbread Houses). 

Method

  1. Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually add the warm water until the icing becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. If necessary, add more water (a drop at a time) or icing sugar to adjust the consistency.

    It worked great would help if you could say how much it would cover but you could also use your brain and just add more icing sugar and water

    It doesn’t say how many cupcakes it would cover?

    No point giving sugar weight and quantity of water without telling us how much icing this makes, eg how many fairy cakes it would cover.
