This is one that I"m putting under my favorites, absolutely. Thanks Marra. I kind of stumbled upon this after seeing your review for Redsie's Orange Poppy Seed Muffins (Light). Decided to follow your advice and use Splenda instead of using powdered sugar. I used 2 T. of orangejuice concentrate as the liquid. Perfect. I love the use of Splenda whenever I can and so am always on the lookout for possible recipes. 5 Stars.

What a great idea! I decreased the cornstarch to 2 tablespoons, used orange juice and zest and drizzled it over Carrot and Poppy Seed Muffins for a sinful-tasting treat. Thanks!

I made this and thought that it had too much of a taste from the 'raw' cornstarch. I decided to microwave it for 1 minute to take away that flavor and ended up with a very tasty if thick lemon curd. I added water and tried to puree it with my immersion blender and it got less thick but was still lemon curd, not a glaze. I think it would work better as a glaze just with Splenda and juice, no cornstarch. But this was the easiest lemon curd I've ever made! Made for Zaar Tag.

This is a great "basic" recipe, with many possibilities for variantions. I also used cocoa powder and coffee and used the glaze on Marra's Carey Neff's Espresso Cake. I am going to try it for the holidays with peppermint flavoring.

I made a mocha glaze with this using 1 TBS cornstarch, 2 tsp coco powder and 3-4 tbsp brewed coffee with the Splenda. It came out great. It doesn't make a lot of volume if your looking for a heavy glaze but to drizzle something lightly it's great. I will certainly be using this again. Thanks Marra for a great idea. *EDIT*:I'm increasing this to 5 stars because the more I think about how very adaptable it is to flavoring and current items that you may be making (consistancy of glaze) I think it deserves 5
