Confectioners sugar glaze is a classic for a reason. It's less fussy than royal icing and more precise than buttercream. Plus, it also dries hard, takes color brilliantly and tastes good, too.
For children, we recommend that you find small squeeze bottles and fill with multiple colors of glaze for the family to share. They make it easy to draw patterns or pictures, write names and do Jackson Pollock-esque dribbles and squiggles that actually turn out looking really cute!
This recipe, which we found on Family Fun magazine, makes enough to decorate about 24 cookies.
