      This icing is very adaptable. For flavoring, I used 2 drops of clear vanilla, and 1 drop each of lemon and almond extract. I've thinned the icing with milk to make a glaze, thickened a bit with more powdered sugar to pipe, and used it as is to spread on cookies. I really like that it dries to a glossy finish instead of dull (and tasteless) like royal icing.

      This frosting was just the right consistency when I used 3 tsp milk instead of 2. I have been looking for a beautiful frosting like this, it is a keeper! Thanks

      What a great icing! This kept a beautiful sheen which looks great on the sugar cookies we iced with it. I did have to add much more corn syrup than the recipe said in order to get it to a spreading consistency.
