  • 1 cup confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 drop lemon juice can be fresh


  1. Place one cup of powder sugar in a sifter. Try not to skip this step! Lumps in icing are hard to fix.
  2. Add one tablespoon milk, one tablespoon corn syrup, and one drop lemon juice.
  3. Mix everything together. If it looks too dry, can add more milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time. Be sure to mix well after each addition as you don't need much.
