Sugar-citrus hard glaze for cake

Alex Halsey | Apr 9, 2009 11:15 AM


My late grandmother used to cover her hazelnut torte with a wonderful glaze made of lemon juice and confectioner's sugar. It hardened on top. I tried it, but ended up with a syrup that went into the cake. Nice, but not what I'm looking for. I want to see the glaze and have forks go through with that satisfying icing feeling.

Any tips? Was my ratio off?

Thanks for any advice.
