    1. You put the recipe up as Icing Glaze, and didn’t separate the ingredients for the beginning of the list, as the muffins and then put the ingredients for the glaze, separate. it is very confusing this way. you may want to rethink the placing of the recipe. otherwise, it sounds like it will be rather yummy.
