Icing for Decorating Cookies

This icing is dry and it is still glossy
This is the best icing for decorating that I have ever used. It is easy to spread and dries glossy. The icing looks like the icing you would get on a cookie at a bakery. It does take a while to dry, but once it dries the cookies can be stacked without messing up the icing. This recipe can be doubled or tripled. Using color gels will give you more vibrant colors than food coloring.

Decorating Icing

1 Cup (120 g) of Powdered Sugar
3 Tsp of Milk
2 Tsp of Corn Syrup
1/2 Tsp of Extract, Optional
Food Coloring or Color Gel

Mix powdered sugar and milk together. Mix in corn syrup.
Mixing the icing
Stir in extract. Add more milk by the 1/2 teaspoon, if needed, until desired consistency is reached. If you add too much milk then add more powdered sugar.
Plastic bags of icing
Separate into bowls and add food coloring or color gel.
Clear icing
The bottom line: will I make this again. Yes. This is my favorite icing for decorating cookies.
