Powdered Sugar Icing/Glaze1/3 cup stick margarine or butter 2 cups powdered sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 2-4 tablespoons water Preparation: Melt margarine in a saucepan. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and mix until smooth and of desired consistency (a thick syrup). Drizzle over cooled cake. (This will glaze one 12-cup bundt cake or a 10-inch angel food cake.)
How to Make a Simple Cake Glaze: Melt 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) of butter in a saucepan or microwave. Sift 2 cups of powdered sugar into a medium size bowl. Add the melted butter to the powdered sugar. Add 2 tablespoons of milk. If desired, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for flavor. Beat until smooth and creamy, adding a little more milk if necessary. Drizzle over a cooled cake. Tip: Substitute citrus juice for the milk and add a little grated zest for a citrus glaze.
