What you need for this recipe
Powdered sugar - you can not substitute this with any other sugar.
Ube flavoring - is the primary flavoring for this recipe. This flavor is typical in Philippine cuisine. You may also substitute ube flavoring with mango extract, jackfruit extract, maple extract, almond extract, pandan extract, or vanilla extract.

How to make this recipe
Start by sifting the powdered sugar to remove lumps and measuring the desired amount for making the glaze. Use the spoon and level method for measuring your sugar.
Place the sugar in a bowl and add the liquid (like milk, water, or cream). I recommend gradually adding the liquid to the powdered sugar.
Whisk the sugar and liquid until a smooth icing glaze is formed.
