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:) Read More

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

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. Read More

I let it simmer for a few minutes to get a little thicker after I read other comments. Added a drop of vanilla. It's delicious over an orange cake! Read More
