D308: Recipe - Easy Strawberry icing

This is an easy recipe for a lightly flavoured strawberry icing.  It's enough for a tray cake of about 23x30cm.

200g pure icing sugar
3-4 tbsp spoons of recently boiled water
2 tbsp strawberry jam (preferably a conserve, chunk free)
Red or pink food dye (optional)

This is made the way most glazes are made but with added jam.  It's that simple. But just in case it's new to you, it goes like this: 

Boil the water.
Sift the icing sugar into a bowl.
Add 3 tbsp of water to the sugar, one at a time. Stop when it's still quite thick and hard to stir.  
Add the jam and stir well.
Add one more tspn of water if required.
Add a drop of food colouring if you like.
