Can this be done

Hi,

Can you take any frosting recipe and thin it down to use as a glaze? Does this apply to some frostings only,and if so how do you know which ones you can do this to?

Thanks,
Bohh

My friend if you were to do that you would be altering the integrity of the frosting. Why don't you seek a recipe for a "GLAZE". Check out for a recipe in a cake book or baking book. There are a few & some with insruction for coloring them as well. Begin by looking for a "CLEAR GLAZE".
I hope this helps you & have a nice day.

Yes, I know to look for a glaze recipe. I just would like to know if you could do the above question and get a glaze from it. I have one recipe that you make and its a frosting one. They say in directions you can add more cream or powder sugar to achieve the desired consistency. It also says your choice of a thick frosting or a very thin glaze,or anything in between is possible. So with that was wondering can any frosting recipe be made into a glaze?

You could always warm up some butter cream and pour.
bake first, ask questions later.
