Tahini icing

Prepare a syrup and after adding the tahini, blend the mixture and preserve it in bain marie.

Use this icing to cover cakes, muffins, biscuits, buns, croissants, pastries, viennoises, ekler, puffs and anything else you may think of.

It is also ideal as donut icing and crepe filling.

If you prefer to make it stronger, it becomes caramel tahini sauce and can accompany ice-creams and waffles.
