Use it to make the smoothest frostings, icings, and glazes you’ve ever seen for the finishing touch on your cakes, cupcakes, and more.

⅔ cups (167 ml)
  • ¼ cup (50 g) Redpath Simply Raw™ Turbinado Sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) water
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice, preferably freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp (2 g) fresh thyme leaves
  • 1⅔ cup (200 g) Redpath® Icing Sugar
  • ¼ tsp (1 g) salt
Step 1

In a small pot, combine the Redpath Simply Raw™ Turbinado Sugar with the water, lemon juice, and thyme. Bring mixture to a simmer and stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and cover to allow the thyme to infuse into the syrup; 10 minutes.

Step 2

Strain syrup into a bowl. Discard thyme leaves.

Step 3

Sift the Redpath® Icing Sugar and salt into the syrup and gently whisk to combine.

Step 4

Use the thyme sugar glaze to dip or spoon over cooled doughnuts or pour over cakes. Set glazed items aside to harden; 5 to 10 minutes.
