Easier to work with than royal icing and so much tastier!

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 drop lemon juice, fresh or bottled


  • Place one cup of confectioners' sugar in a sifter. Try not to skip this step! Lumps in icing are hard to fix.
  • Add one tablespoon milk, one tablespoon corn syrup, and one drop lemon juice.
  • Mix everything together. If it looks too dry, add more milk, ½ teaspoon at a time. Be sure to mix well after each addition as you don't need much.
