Amazing Glaze

A glaze is made with confectioners sugar, but is different from icing or frosting by the nature of its gently silken fluid quality. The simple recipe I've included here is for a glaze that my Nana used to make. The measurements are perfection and serve as a great base for whatever glaze you wish to make to outfit your cake, whether it be bundt or not. Try substituting lemon juice and lemon zest for the orange listed here and add a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract--or whatever suits you. The possibilities merely await in your kitchen!

Nana's Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tsp orange juice

Mix all ingredients until smooth.
