How do I delete / remove an application that is stuck installing?

Every now and then an iPad application will get "stuck" or "frozen" while installing. If this has happened to you, you likely have an iPad application icon perpetually showing as "waiting" to complete its installation.

Attempts to remove the application fail, because holding your finger on the icon produces no "x" for removal. So how do you delete it?

Applications stuck in mid-installation can be removed simply by restarting / rebooting your iPad.
