Delicious and Easy Bundt Cake Glaze Recipe

Are you a fan of homemade cakes but not a fan of dealing with frosting? I totally get it! Sometimes, we just want a simple yet delicious glaze to pour over our cakes. That’s where this Bundt Cake Glaze comes in! It’s a velvety vanilla glaze that adds both visual appeal and amazing flavor to your homemade treats.

A Simple Solution for Cake Lovers

As much as I enjoy the art of cake decorating, frosting can be time-consuming and intimidating. The process of making small batch buttercream requires softening the butter, beating everything together, and carefully applying multiple layers. Let’s not forget about my less-than-perfect cake decorating skills. If you can relate, this Bundt Cake Glaze will become your new best friend!

Not only does this vanilla glaze require only 4 basic ingredients you likely have in your kitchen right now, but it also takes no more than 5 minutes to make. No need to wait for butter to soften, as you can melt it in the microwave. Plus, you can easily customize the glaze by adding other flavorings such as lemon zest, almond extract, or maple syrup.

How to Make Glaze for a Bundt Cake

Making your own icing for bundt cakes is incredibly easy! All you need is a bowl and a whisk:

  1. Whisk together melted butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
  2. Adjust the amount of milk or sugar until you achieve a smooth and pourable consistency.

Achieving Perfect Consistency

You’ll know your glaze is ready when it has a consistency similar to corn syrup. To test it, take a spoonful and drizzle it back into the bowl. It should leave a ribbon trail for a few seconds before blending back into the glaze. If the glaze is too thick, add a little more milk. Conversely, if it’s too thin, add a touch more powdered sugar.

Glazing a Bundt Cake

To avoid a messy glaze situation, place your cake on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet. This allows the icing to drip down without creating a pool of glaze around the cake. If you want to make clean-up even easier, you can line your baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Using a spoon or a small vessel with a spout, pour the glaze evenly over the cake, letting it flow down its curves. If you’re feeling fancy and want to add sprinkles or nuts, do it immediately while the glaze is still wet so they stick. Finally, let your cake sit at room temperature for approximately 2 hours for the glaze to harden. If you’re in a hurry, you can refrigerate it to speed up the process.
