I used 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar and I added a capful of orange extract. I let it cook over low heat until it thickened some, then I poured over my Pumpkin Gingerbread from th...

The flavor was good but it was too runny - I think that the proportions of each ingredient are off. I was hoping for a thicker sugar glaze.

Wonderful glaze - used it on "Gina's Pound Cake" from this site.

Made this to glaze Peach Cake II. Really nice, fresh flavor that complemented the cake.

Great glaze not very orangy. I added triple sec just to give it a kick. Grand Marnier or Cointreau would be excellent.

Very easy and delicious. A perfect glaze for a yellow bundt cake.

Boil the glaze for five minutes, stirring constantly. That changes the consistency entirely.
