Easy Frosting

Lemon juice and some powdered sugar will make a nice glaze for a plain cake or quick bread. Just put a cup of sifted powdered sugar and a teaspoon of lemon juice in a bowl. Mix together and add drops of water or more juice until a thick but runny consistency is achieved.

Make cream-cheese frosting by mixing a package of cream cheese with 1-2 cups of powdered sugar, adding a few drops of milk at a time to get the desired consistency. Flavor with vanilla, orange peel, or cocoa powder. Make a pumpkin frosting by omitting the milk and adding canned pumpkin, a tablespoon at a time, and a little pumpkin pie spice. More sugar may be needed because of the extra moisture from the pumpkin.

For a less sugary frosting use chilled chocolate pudding (or any other flavor) on your cake.
