Powdered sugar glaze takes minutes to whip up, and this glossy topping goes great with so many things. I’ve definitely made a few lemon pound cakes in my time, and they just wouldn’t be the same without this sugary glaze. It has a powdered sugar base which is what makes it so sweet and smooth.

Usually, powdered sugar has corn or potato starch in it to keep it from getting clumpy and sticking together. Some people with allergies may not be able to eat powdered sugar. This tip is for you! You can still make a delicious glaze with a substitute.
You can store your leftover powdered sugar glaze for days to come using these simple tips!
On the Counter: Whether it is atop of a baked good or stored on it’s own, you can keep it in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days. You can keep it longer for that, but it really is best fresh and I recommend making a fresh batch when you need it.
