What do you need to ice? In royal icing, glycerine is added so that the icing does not harden so much, and you would use it for icing a cake, for example. With no glycerine, it is usually used for decorating cookies since you would usually want the icing crunchy. If you want a glaze, mixing icing sugar with water will do - add more or less water depending on the consistency you want. Thicker icing can be used for cookies, thinner icing is good for drizzling over cakes. Depends what you need it for!
