Makes enough for a 18cm/7in round cake
Measure the icing sugar into a bowl, then melt the butter for a few seconds in the microwave or in a small pan over a low heat, taking care not to burn it.
Pour the melted buter with the cream and brandy into the sugar and mix until smooth.
Use to cover a cake while warm, then leave to set before cutting the cake.
