Kid Easy King Cake Icing


  • 1 1/2 cups of confectioners' sugar (that's powdered sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons of water


  • You can buy a pre-made white icing. But if you want to try your culinary prowess, just follow the directions below for homemade icing.
  • Combine the sugar and lemon juice together in a bowl. Add the water until the icing reaches spreading consistency. Use more water to thin as needed.
  • Need more icing? Just double the recipe!
