  1. Oh my, it looks delicious - no good for my waistline though! I've been cutting back on all the yummy stuff for a few weeks already. It's paying off

    1. Oh dear, I ought to be cutting off, but at this time of year it's more of a gradual building up. This is why you never see pictures of my waistline. :)

    1. I think so, Anna. Are you drizzling the glaze, or making designs with it? If you want to make designs, perhaps a royal icing would be better. This glaze is a little softer because of the butter and milk, so it might not work for fancy designs - but I think it tastes much better. It works well for drizzling, or spreading.
