Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons water, or
  • 3 tablespoons fruit juice
  • cups XXXX Confectioner's sugar
  • Flavor to taste

Method

If the cake is cold, have liquid hot. Stir the liquid into the sifted sugar, adding more, a few drops at a time, as needed. A little lemon added to any fruit juice improves the flavor. The icing is of the proper consistency when it coats the spoon and conceals its color.
