Butter Glaze

10 cupcakes

Use this glaze to make our Toadstool Cupcakes. Make the glaze just before you are ready to ice the cooled cupcakes.


  • 2 ¾ sticks (11 ounces) unsalted butter

  • ¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon milk

  • 3 pounds (10 ½ cups) confectioners' sugar, sifted


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir in milk.

  2. Whisk together butter mixture and the sugar in a large bowl until icing is opaque and thickened but still pourable, 4 to 5 minutes. Use immediately.
