Basic Sweet Glaze Recipes


A frosting glaze, which runs down the sides of baked goods (unlike regular icing which makes a thick layer on top) adds just a bit of sweetness. It also acts as “glue” for decorating with sprinkles, nuts, and coconut. Orange and Cinnamon rolls, bundt and tube cakes, tarts, coffee cakes, and cookies are often enhanced with a glaze. What follows are a Rich Frosting Glaze, an Orange glaze for hot Orange Rolls, and a Vanilla Glaze for hot Cinnamon Rolls.

It’s helpful to sift the powdered sugar if it is lumpy, and if you have time. The Rich Frosting Glaze should be thick enough to coat a spoon, but thin enough to slowly run off when the spoon is held up; the point is to run to the edges and a bit down the sides of the baked item without completely running off (this glaze is pictured on Pumpkin Napoleons). The Orange and Vanilla Glazes will have the consistency of soft whipped cream rather than being runny, since they will melt onto the hot rolls.

Basic Rich Frosting Glaze


Makes 2 cups or 18 Servings at 2 tablespoons each

3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 to 1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon extract, (flavor of your choice)
  1. Whisk together the powdered sugar, softened butter, and enough whipping cream to make a glaze similar to the consistency of pancake batter.

  2. The glaze should be thick enough to coat a spoon, but thin enough to run slowly so that it will cover the baked item and partially run down the sides.
