How to Make Glaze for Cake

This glaze is literally the icing on the cake. It’s the perfect topping to bring all the flavors together. The glaze is simple and has 4 ingredients; powdered sugar, melted butter, fresh lemon juice, and vanilla extract.

If you’d like it looser, then add more melted butter.
