Issue #34 – Galaxy Icing

Ingredients:

1 box cake mix

1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)

2-3 Tablespoons milk (add additional milk if too thick)

Gel food coloring(red and blue)

Edible glitter (sprinkles)

Directions:

Prepare cake according to directions on box.

Combine the milk and sugar in a medium-sized bowl. Stir well with a whisk or tablespoon until properly combined.

Separate glaze into 4 equal parts, placing them into 4 small bowls (or cups).

Add 1 drop of red food coloring to one bowl, this should make a pink color.

Add 2 red drops and 2 blue drops of food coloring to one bowl, this should make a purple color.

Add 1 drop of blue food coloring to one bowl, this should make a light blue color.

Add 5 drops of blue food coloring to one bowl, this should make a dark blue color.

Drizzle the glaze over the cake, one color at a time.

Using a spoon gently smear colors together to create a space effect.

Finish off by sprinkling edible glitter (sprinkles) to the glaze for the stars.

TIP: Prior to glazing the cake, we frosted the cake with white canned frosting to give us a smooth and even texture for the glaze.
