You use a royal icing like Antonia\s royal icing recipe.  Take part of it and slowly add a few drops of water at a time.  Mix with beaters.  Keep checking it so it will flow off of the knife/spatula.  I burp it to get rid of air bubbles and put in plastic bottles or bags with tips appropriate to size and fill in the areas.  I let each area dry at least 6 hours ( this wet icing really needs to dry so you don't smug it.) Then work with next area to fill.  

 

Or are you thinking of a poured icing like ganache or sugar icing used for petit fours?
