Homemade cinnamon rolls, cakes, and sugar cookies taste way better when frosted with homemade icing. Needing only three ingredients (you probably already have in your pantry) means making your own Powdered Sugar Icing is faster, easier, and tastier than store-bought icing.

Powdered Sugar Icing Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk or orange juice

In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Stir in additional milk or juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, until it reaches drizzling consistency. Makes 1/2 cup (enough to drizzle over one 10-inch tube cake).
