I wonder why it isn't showing up on the top here? I connected it to here but isn't showing up.

Unfortunately, we now have to go to the actual recipe and link it from there. Go figure....

I guess that is so we don't have all kinds of recipes in a particular group.

Actually, this is probably a good idea. This way if we're, say in the just cakes group, discussing a meat dish to someone we can insert the link so they can view it without it linking it to the cake group. It's really a great idea.

That's what I meant. I think it is good also. Didn't know they were doing it though.

I think it changed when they added the new features a week or so ago.

Sheila, glaze is very easy to make. I managed a bakery for years. It is best to glaze your donuts while they are still warm but not piping hot. Also, the thicker the glaze (without it clumping) the better. It will liquify when it hits the hot donuts. The basic ingredient of a glaze is 1 cup of white powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla (or Real Lemon), and 1-2 Tbsp of warm water to make it the consistency you desire. I prefer the vanilla and on a couple of occasions have mixed lemon and vanilla. Doesn't sound it but it was pretty good for something different. Hope this helps!
