This is just the perfect glaze! The milk or OJ varies with room temp. I warmed it a tiny bit so it would glide on easier.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the confectioners' sugar, butter, and vanilla together.
  2. Adding half the milk (or orange juice) to start with, stir in to make a thick glaze, adding just a drop at a time more until you get a nice thick glaze.
  3. Spread or pour immediately over cooled cinnamon rolls, pastries, pound cakes, or Danish.
  4. Glaze will form a crust and harden as it cools, but you can spread over warmed cakes and serve that way as well.
