Store-bought frosting is an ideal time-saver when you're baking a cake or cupcakes on short notice. But ready-made frosting can also be used on a whole host of sweet treats like donuts, cookies and cake pops. Turn that tub of frosting into a glaze thin enough to drizzle or pour over your favorite desserts. You can make this quick glaze in your microwave or on the stove. Make sure you use a creamy-style frosting; whipped frosting becomes far too runny when it is exposed to heat.
Scoop your desired amount of frosting into a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave the frosting on "High" for 10 seconds.
Stir the frosting and check the consistency. If it's still too thick for your liking, continue to microwave for 5-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until it reaches your desired consistency.
Stove Top Instructions
Scoop the desired amount of frosting into a small saucepan.
Place the saucepan over medium heat.
Stir the frosting continuously as it heats until it is thin enough to drizzle.
