Orange Icing

This icing can be used with all sorts of cakes.

Above you can see it on the One Egg Banana Cake.

This recipe has been published a great deal in vintage Australian newspapers. I found it in the Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer, Friday the 17th November 1916


1/2 lb or 240gm of icing sugar or powdered sugar.

A couple of tablespoons of pulp-free orange juice.


Sift the sugar.

Warm the orange juice in a saucepan and add the icing sugar.

Heat gently until melted and pour over your cooled cake.
