Chocolate Glaze for Cake or Flexible Decor

Chocolate Glaze for Cake or Flexible Decor

Serves: 1

Total time: 25 min     Prep time: 10 min

3 tbsps heavy cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tbsps water
  1 1/2 ozs cocoa (powder)
  1 1/2 tsps gelatin (unflavored, 14 sheets of sheet)

1In a large saucepan, combine cream, sugar, 1/2 cup of the water and the cocoa.
2Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer whisking often until very thick like hot fudge sauce- 8-10 minutes from beginning of simmer.
3Watch carefully so miixture doesn't boil over.
4Remove pan from heat.
5While mixture cools, bloom gelatin in 1 1/2 tablespoon of cold water.
6Melt the bloomed gelatin over very hot water or in the microwave.
7(If using sheet gelatin, soften for 5 minutes in cold water, wring out gelatin and whisk into chocolate mixture).
8Whisk gelatin into chocolate mixture and strain the glaze through a medium sieve into a metal bowl.
9Let glaze cool at room temperature until thick but still pourable, about 5-10 minutes.
10Pour glaze over your cake or shape into decor  (this is very delicate for decor, you must shape but leave final ornament to harden, but is quite flexible)
