How to Make a Glaze

Glazes are used to give desserts a smooth or shiny finish. A glaze is usually drizzled onto a cake or applied with a pastry brush to give a glisten to pastries. Glazes also add a glassine look to fruit pies and tarts.

A basic glaze contains confectioners’ sugar and a liquid such as water or milk. More liquid is added for a thinner glaze. Flavor can be added with melted chocolate, extracts, jams, or fruit juice.
