Making strawberry glaze is quick and easy. Only 2 ingredients are needed for this recipe that you can flavor and adjust for sweetness depending on what you use it for. It's perfect for glazing cakes, scones, donuts, and pastries. It lasts a lot in the refrigerator and can be frozen. 

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup




  1. Mix half of the strawberry puree with the powdered sugar in a bowl and check to see the consistency. It should be like thick honey.
  2. Add more strawberry puree if needed to adjust depending if you want a thicker or thinner glaze or icing.
  3. It's best to use at room temperature. 
  4. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container or well covered. 


  • Organization: read the recipe first and make sure you have ingredients at the right temperatures, equipment needed, and enough workspace. This will make the process so much easier!
  • Frozen strawberries: you can use them straight from the freezer. If they have too much ice around them (something that happens when they've been frozen for a long time) thaw them a little just to release some of the icy water, not the juices. The strawberry itself will still be pretty frozen. 
  • How thick or thin do you like it? You can add more or less strawberry puree to make the type of glaze you want.
  • Storing: it keeps for weeks in the refrigerator, well covered, or in an airtight container. And a month in the freezer. If refrigerated, stir it vigorously before using it so it's smooth again.
