Taken from Gary & Janella's Good Chef Bad Chef tv show, this was shown in 2006 but the show is on re-runs, on UKTV Food. A healthier take on a cream cheese frosting.

This is very good but is much more like a glaze than a frosting as mentioned in the previous review. Very easy to make. I used this to go with Lemon Yogurt Cupcakes and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing.

This was made for PAC Spring 2009. A very nice icing (more like a glaze) with just the right amount of tang and sweet. I will make it again - had it on Best Ever Butter Pound Cake, and it was very good. Thanks for a very nice recipe.
