3 Tbsp Milk (plus more as needed)

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Chefmaster Liqua-Gel® food coloring or Natural food coloring (optional)

  1. Measure and prepare all your ingredients.
  2. Shift Powdered Sugar into a bowl.
  3. Slowly add 3 Tbsp Milk and the Vanilla while stirring with a hand whisk until smooth.
    • Note: If you prefer your glaze runnier (especially for dipping), add more Milk (approx. ½ Tbsp to 1 Tbsp at a time). If you prefer a thicker glaze, add more Powdered Sugar (approx. 1 Tbsp at a time).
  1. Optional: add a couple of drops of the Chefmaster Liqua-Gel® food coloring or Natural food coloring of your choice to enhance your baked good even further.
  2. If you are not using your glaze right away, cover your bowl tightly with plastic wrap so there is no air in between the glaze and the film and refrigerate.
