Glace icing

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Glace icing is the simplest form of icing. Very handy if you don’t have enough time to decorate your cake or cupcakes. I made some cupcakes yesterday and decorated it with glace icing. Here’s the recipe.


2 cups icing sugar, sifted

2 to 3 tablespoon of warm water or fruit juice

food colouring

Method : Sift the icing sugar. Use a wooden spoon, add the warm water and stir until the icing is smooth. The consistency should be similar to that of a whip cream. Or it should coat the back of your spoon. Add the colouring and it’s ready to use. This recipe is enough to cover an 8 inch round cake or for 24 cupcakes.

However take note that glace icing will harden quickly, so you have to work fast. I also find that my cupcake doesn’t look very nice the day after. Some of the icing started to crack. So it’s best eaten on the same day. There’s a few variety, you can add coffee powder, cocoa or fruit juice to flavour the glace icing, in place of the water.




All beginners should try this icing. A no-fail recipe !

about RM100 rasanya.. tak puas hati pulak, bila dah pasang skru dia semua, nampak kecik. Kalau kat US , aku nampak about 30 US dollar. Ngam la exchange rate dia tu. Nak ke ?

Pixie, I’ve seen your work ok.. you are definitely not a beginner. Anyway, hope you’ll enjoy your Madonna concert this 10th May.

Cik Milah, terima kasih le mendoakan kita. Icing ni tak tahan lama tau, ngap aje lepas deko. Mungkin kalau nak tahan sikit, kena taruk tebal sikit layer dia. Tapi manis sgt la pulak nanti.
