I used 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar and I added a capful of orange extract. I let it cook over low heat until it thickened some, then I poured over my Pumpkin Gingerbread from this site. Yummy :)

The flavor was good but it was too runny - I think that the proportions of each ingredient are off. I was hoping for a thicker sugar glaze.

Made this to glaze Peach Cake II. Really nice, fresh flavor that complemented the cake.

Great glaze not very orangy. I added triple sec just to give it a kick. Grand Marnier or Cointreau would be excellent.

As someone else did, I used powder sugar and brown sugar as well (eye-balled it), and being that some have said it needed more orange flavor, I added orange zest also, it was perfect.

I used lime juice instead of orange juice. Very tasty!

Very easy and delicious. A perfect glaze for a yellow bundt cake.
