Glaze Icing for Bundt Cakes

Glaze Icing for Bundt Cakes

Here is the first recipe that I would love to share with you all.

What I absolutely love about this recipe is that it can be altered so many ways to suit the type of cake that you are baking, it is simple and quick. It has a very smooth constancy, so it pours on easy.

Now…Enough of the introduction, now on to the good part!


1. Sift or Aerate 2 cups of Powdered Sugar into a medium size bowl

2. Add 4 Tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

3. Add 2 tablespoons of milk or heavy whipping cream (whichever you perfer)

4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

5. Whisk ingredients together until all ingredients are well incorporated

6. Slowly, while still whisking, add more milk or heavy whipping cream until you have YOUR desired constancy.

7. Pour glaze on your bundt cake in a zig zag motion while turning your cake slowly until the top of your cake is completely covered.


For more variations or to give your bundt cake a different presentation, try some of the suggestions here:

For Kids Party-Add glaze to a chocolate or vanilla bundt cake, then add ice cream sprinkles to the top of the glaze

For Valentines-Cover chocolate bundt cake with glaze, then top with heart shape sprinkles, halved Maraschino cherries (Ooo, I think Maraschino Cherries will make this an instant Black Forest Bundt Cake, What do you think?), or use food coloring to make pink glaze

For Halloween-add orange or red food coloring to glaze until desired color is reached

Add pecans, chocolate chips, colored sugar, lemon juice (to replace vanilla extract in recipe) granish with fine grated lemon zest  or just simply color your glaze.


Above are two pictures of my creations with glaze icing. To the left is garnished with pecans. To the right the glaze is colored orange with green icing piped to form a stem to the pumpkin. 


Challenge: I encourage you to give one of the variations a try or create your own variation. Have fun in the creation process. Experiment as much as you can, when you can. Take plenty of pictures to gauge your progress. Tell us how it went for you, we love feedback on recipe trials. Add a picture or two to show us what you created with your Glaze Icing.
