More About This Recipe

  • This frosting recipe is so simple. Just powdered sugar, vanilla and a little milk is all you need to make a homemade icing. You can substitute coconut milk or almond milk if you want a non-dairy version; a little orange juice would work, too. It’s a pretty foolproof formula! And you can adjust the amount of liquid depending on what consistency you want: a little more will give you a thinner glaze; a little less will give you a more spreadable texture. This is the perfect icing for cinnamon rolls, donuts, cake, holiday baking, you name it—any dessert recipe where you want a simple, straightforward icing to sweeten things up a little.
