Thought cake decorating was difficult? Think again. You’ll be able to decorate cakes with just a few spoonfuls of sugar and lemon juice in no time after watching this how to make quick sugar icing video. Simply roll 2 lemons back and forth between the palm of your hand and a cutting board to release the lemons’ juices, halve the lemons, and juice them. Add 2 tbsp of lemon juice to your icing sugar and whisk until a thick icing is formed, adding more icing sugar or lemon juice to achieve the desired consistency. Now all you have to do is drizzle it over cupcakes and enjoy!
The beauty of this icing is that it’s so versatile, meaning you could use freshly pressed orange or grapefruit juice in the place of the lemon juice, or even some rosewater mixed with a little plain water for a delicate, floral icing. This is a great base icing that you can vary in multiple ways to suit all of your cake needs and desires.
