A total MUST to increase milk to tablespoons from teaspoons otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing. This one ROCKED! It turned out perfect, was soooo simple and fool proof. Works great to spread, pipe or pour. I made this one 7 seperate times before writing review and all were perfect. The taste was right on, it poured over my bundt cakes beautifully and hardened enough to cover within 20 minutes.(cool your cake completely beforehand). The other batches were made for decorating cookies and they too were perfect each time. One batch is more than enough to lightly spread and generously pipe 2 dozen average sized cookies.


In all fairness, I have to say that this review is really for the glaze using a number of other reviewers' suggestions and modifications. It seems very few people prepared this recipe as written and those who did were not happy with it. Mixing up this glaze with the suggestions to use 1 T. each of butter and corn syrup, and enough milk to desired consistency, this was simply perfect--shiny and white, just what I was after.


This is a good base for a vanilla glaze. As the others have said it needs more milk. I really think that there is a typo when it comes to the milk, it should be tablespoon rather than teaspoon. The corn syrup is a nice extra if you want it to set nice but it does make it a little too sweet (I love sweet things) I would decrease the sugar to 1 1/4 cup if 1 tbl of corn syrup is added. It really needed extra vanilla. I used 1/2 tsp but I would even double that. It really did need at least 1 tbl of butter. I would add more. If you do decrease the powdered sugar take it easy on the milk and add as you go, you can always add more later but there is no way to fix a soupy mess unless you want pure sugar.
