I posted another thread regarding decorating cake balls in non-chocolate & non-nuts toppings. One of the suggestions (made by sweetpea223) was to dip the cake balls in a powdered sugar glaze. The only recipe that I could find on CC is the following (by kakes_by_kim):
1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
Stir milk into sugar. Drizzle on dessert cakes, muffins and cookies.
Does anyone know if this "crusts" or does anyone have a recipe for one that does? I just wanted a glaze that will be semi-hard (like the glaze on a glazed donut) so that I can roll it in sprinkles and it won't be too messy when being eaten. TIA!
You might try the poured fondant that is used on petitfours
Does poured fondant require a glaze or buttercream layer first? Do you have a poured fondant recipe that you recommend? Sorry...I've never used poured fondant.
The glaze should harden fine. This is how I ice my sugar cookies. I make the glaze and dip the top of the cookie and gently wipe of some of the glaze and then add sprinkles. They set up great and with a couple of hours, they can be stacked .
I use water, not milk, add a little salt to cut the sweetness and a bit of vanilla. I mix it until it is about the consistency of egg whites.
classiccake...sounds easy and delicious. Going to give this one a try on some sugar cookies...Thanks!
