    Thank you! This was exactly what i was looking for to put on a blueberry lemon cake I made...(and didn't want to use the lemon glaze that was with the recipe). So easy to make and delicious. Advice to others..do not pour on cake until it has cooled completely. I didn't have patience and only let it cool a little bit...so when I "piped" the glaze on with a plastic bag, it just oozed down and did not stick.(And the color of the glaze would not stay on the cake.) I want to see the color of the icing so I will reapply now that it has cooled 100%. Thanks so...easy and delicious.

    This was good. I didn't use as much sugar because I didn't need that much. (Only used 3/4c sugar and 1tbsp milk)

    I made a pound cake for my boss. And this was just perfect for what I was looking for. Light frosting, not that heavy store bought one. Thanks for this super easy receipe.

    SOOO simple! I add a teaspoon of Watkins banana flavoring to glaze banana bundt cakes, raspberry for petit fours, etc. (no, I don't sell Watkins, I just really like their flavoring). You can glaze anything with this...thicker for some, thinner for others.

    Easy to make and great as a glaze over Angel Cake. I added blue food coloring to the glaze to decorate my son's birthday cake. Worked like a charm!

    I tweaked it a tad by adding about a tsp of orange zest.
