• 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 6-8 tsp of milk
  • 4 tsp of corn syrup
  • ½ tsp of vanilla extract (or almond extract)
  • food coloring (optional)


  1. Sift powdered sugar into a medium bowl. Add 6 teaspoons milk, corn syrup, and extract. Stir vigorously until icing is smooth
  2. If needed, add additional milk to thin icing more. You've reached the correct consistency for frosting if a scoop of icing slowly falls off the spoon. If making colored icing, divide into bowls and add food coloring
