How to Make Cookie Icing

How to Make Cookie Icing


Why buy preservative filled,
store-bought cookie icing, when you can make your own
in just 3 easy steps. You need confectioners sugar,
milk, corn syrup, And we’re adding a little almond
extract for flavor. Step One:
Mix it up In a small bowl, stir together
confectioners sugar and milk until smooth. Then, beat in corn syrup and almond
extract until you icing is smooth and glossy. Step Two:
Add color. Divide into separate bowls. So you can
add different food colorings. Feel free to add as much,
or as little as you like. Step Three:
Frost. You can do this in 2 ways:
dipping and painting. Simply dip the cookies in the icing.
Or, paint them with a brush. Iced cookies look like they came from
a bakery, but they’re so easy! Make any color or flavoring of icing you
want. It’s faster, and more delicious than frosting in a can.

  1. Indy,

    Thank you for the comment. Most of the videos that we create are "How-to" videos, rather than recipe videos. Our goal is to show techniques, tips, and tricks that you can then apply to any recipe you choose. I hope that helps!

    Thanks, again!

  2. directly from their website, these were the measured ingredients, enough for a dozen cookies…

    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    2 teaspoons milk
    2 teaspoons light corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    assorted food coloring

  3. @LarusTuTos Yes! You can substitute butter for shortening in cookie recipes on a 1 to 1 ratio. Butter usually makes cookies crisper throughout while shortening makes a cookie that is crisp on the edges and chewy in the middle. Cookies made with butter also spread out more, if you need to counteract that, add an additional egg

  4. @MissSeraphicCharm You could substitute a differe flavored extract instead of Almond extract but for this type of creamy icing you need to use confectioner's sugar. If you use granulated sugar, the texture will not be the same.

  5. this video is soo useful for those 4am cravings of icing….so wat if i dont have corn syrup or the extract…..do milk and sugar work okay ? u probably wont reply in time, ill just use trial and error.

  6. Thanks for your question! How did your experiment go? You can make a thin cookie glaze by using milk and confectioners' sugar. For a sample recipe, check out Iced Pumpkin Cookies on our site. Happy baking!

  7. i basically used aunt jemima syrup and coffee and made a syrup coffee icing …it was good but verrryyy sweet and bitter because the coffee was too rich …i still ate it happily though 🙂

  8. Thank you for your question! This icing should set enough in order to stack the cookies, but won't harden too much otherwise. Happy baking!

  11. Can I skip the corn syrup or use something else than corn syrup??? Please answer because I llooovveee your recipes

  12. Thank you for your question, Teresa.

    Here's a complete recipe:

    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    2 teaspoons milk
    2 teaspoons light corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    assorted food coloring

  13. Will this icing harden somewhat,so like if oyu place another cookie on it or near,it wont mess up the decorations made with the icing?

  14. Great question. Yes, this icing will harden so you will be able to place cookies together without ruining them. Enjoy!

  15. Hi there, you won't want to substitute granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar because it will be too grainy. You can easily pulse sugar in a food processor to create powdered sugar! Enjoy 🙂

  16. Hi there, if you don't have corn syrup you can omit it- the icing just won't be a spreadable. Alternatively you can substitute it with glucose syrup or honey!

  17. The other sugar is confectioners' sugar or powdered sugar, iasha fisher. It's used to make frosting because it blends and dissolves quickly with the other ingredients. Did you know you can make your own? Just combine 1 cup of regular white sugar with 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in a blender. Give the mixture a whir to grind it, and you'll have confectioners' sugar in minutes! Make sure to use a blender, because a food processor won't work for this.

  18. I'm about to freakin die I can't make or buy black cookie icing the one that comes in a container like the twist on ChapStick but bigger like

  19. I just mix 250g of powder sugar with 4 tablespoons of water or orange juice or beetroot juice or milk or choc milk, etc. whatever colour you try to achieve…
