Lemon Glaze Icing

Glaze icing is the simplest form of icing, but lends an attractive look to the product it is used to decorate! It is very handy, when you do not have enough time to perk up your cakes or cupcakes with chocolate or whipped cream. One thing to remember is that any glaze icing has to be used immediately on preparation, and has to be spread with a damp palette knife for a smooth texture. Here, we share how you can quickly prepare a Lemon Glaze Icing, which not only improves the appearance but also lends a tangy flavour to the end-product.

Hi, I tried this recipe today for my in-laws marriage anniversary ..! It turned out so perfect.... so tasty.. the lemon taste is just perfect as they don''t like the conventional sweet chocolate/vanilla cakes.... it''s unconventional and very tasty! I just made one small addition.. I roughly ground 3-4 cloves and added in the batter.. the flavour is unbelievably amazing! Thanks so much for this perfectly well-maybe recipe!
