Basic Uncooked Icing

Basic Uncooked Icing


  • 2 1/4 c confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 T butter, softened
  • 3 to 4 T liquid (water, milk, coffee, lemon juice, or orange juice
  • 1 T grated citrus rind (optional)


Place sugar, butter, and 3 T. liquid in mixing bowl; beat until very smooth. The icing should be thin enough to pour, but not so liquid that it runs off the cake. If it is too thick, add more liquid; too thin, beat in more confectioners' sugar. Makes enough for: tops and sides of 8-9" cake, or 18 cupcakes
