    • For thicker or thinner consistency: May be thickened with additional powdered sugar or thinned with more milk or other flavored liquids.
    • Add to completely cooled treats: Heat makes this icing glaze runny, so make sure your treats have completely cooled before icing.
    • To store: Store powdered sugar icing in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the fridge. Bring back to room temperature before reusing.
