Unlike others, I didn't find it was too runny. If it were used as frosting instead of icing which is a thinner consistency for pouring onto cakes, etc. I would think it were too thin. As icing, it is perfection!

this tasted very good, but i had to add a lot more powdered sugar to get it the right consistancy. i also used cinn extract instead of the vanilla. next time i think i'll start with much less milk. i used it on spice cake cookies. thanks for posting!

I made this glaze for the Black Bottom Banana Bars. The milk made it a bit runny for my taste. Ended using about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to get a bit thicker glaze. Overall the taste was good and it was easy to make.
