Sometimes you just need a small amount of icing to write on a cake or cookies. I don't like buying those ready made tubes because they're so expensive for such a small amount of icing. They don't taste that good either. Here's the recipe I use when I just need a small batch. You can tint it any color you want by adding food coloring. The paste coloring is best but the drops will work fine, too.
