I have a friend who has a wedding cake to do and needs a recipe for a chocolate sauce that drapes down the sides of the cake. She says she tried melted chocolate, but found it to harden to quickly before she got the desired effect. She wants something that pours easily and drapes, but stays where she wants it. And still looks glossy after it dries. Any suggestions or recipes. Thanks for any help
In a med bowl, I place 12 oz of semi sweet choc chips. In a med sauce pan add 10 oz of heavy cream. Bring to a scald, and then pour over the choc chips. Add 2 tbl of butter and let sit for 5 minutes or so. Slowly mix together and stir unti it is smooth. Then add 1 tsp of vanilla.
I let it cool down a bit, and then pour over an iced cake, or chill and then whip in a mixer to use as a frosting.
I made a wedding cake with the Sarah Bernhardt Chocolate Glaze from the recipes here. Look it up. It was great!!! Also, there was a gal who gave me a link on a tutorial of how to apply it. (Very good tutorial) I'll have to look back and see who it was.
...o.k. I think the gal who gave me the link was "mencked" I just can't find the link. Maybe you could pm her.
