How do I make a hard shell icing/frosting?

Like for donuts or brownies, or even try it on a cake.

What is the 'magic' ingredient that makes certain frostings harden to a solid glaze?

I am sorry if this came up twice, when I hit submit thread, the website crashed on me, so I hit back and submit again. That is what happened.

Typically, icing for doughnuts and such pastries is made by combining milk and powdered sugar, with a touch of salt, and vanilla. it is either drizzled, poured, or painted onto the pastry and let sit for a few minutes to firm up. If you add a bit of gelatine, then it becomes a soft icing, as the gelatine holds the moisture from evaporating.

If you want a really stiff icing try this - Royal Icing Recipe : Alton Brown : Recipes : Food Network
