Cold Sugar Glaze


  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoonfuls cold water
  • 1 teaspoonful lemon or vanilla extract


Mix the sifted powdered sugar with the cold water and add the lemon or vanilla extract; spread glaze over the cake and set it for 1 or 2 minutes in a cool oven to obtain a glaze; then remove and set in a dry place which is free from dust to dry.

NOTE. Instead of water any kind of fruit juice syrup, wine, rum or Cognac may be used. If lemon juice is used take 1/2 water, 1/2 juice and a little grated rind. For orange use a little rum and 2 tablespoonfuls orange juice. For coffee use instead of water 2 spoonfuls strong coffee. For chocolate stir in 2 tablespoonfuls grated chocolate or cocoa the same way, or melt the chocolate in the oven and then add it to the sugar.
