Chai Spice Frosting Too Thin

by Josie

I made your recipe for the chai spice tea cake and icing and it was a huge success. The only thing is I made the icing and it came out very thin. I added powered sugar but it didn't work so I put it the refrigerator and it thickened up like I wanted it to, but once it came to room temperature it became thin again. I followed the recipe exactly. Is this the way it's supposed to be?

Powdered Sugar

Hi Josie,

In answer to your question about Chai Spice Frosting:

No, it's not supposed to be thin. I've never had that happen. My suggestion to fix this problem would be to add more powdered sugar (sometimes it
will take quite a lot) or leave out the chai tea concentrate and add more powdered spices instead. Heat and humidity can wreak havoc on frostings
so if you live in the tropics this may have something to do with it.

I'm sorry that happened for you but I'm glad that it was still a big

Hopefully these ideas have been helpful. If I can answer any other
for you, please let me know.
