What can I do for thick frosting?

Thick Frostings

Confectioners' sugar frostings and glazes usually thicken if they sit too long. Just add a few drops of milk to thin it, making it the consistency that you wish.

This is a tip that usually works well. However, I caution you to add only a very tiny bit of liquid at a time. You can always add more, but it's easy to end up with too much and lose the consistency of the icing or glaze.
