New to baking and have a quick question on glaze and icing? When looking at a baked product,for instant a bundt cake how do you refer to the topping: is it a glaze or a icing. If its thin coating i would say its a glaze, but seen ones with a thicker glaze which i would consider icing and they refer to it as a glaze too? I thought icing is thicker than glaze, how do you know what term to use? How do you distinguish between them?
