Yep, I've been asked to make my brother in law a cake that looks like a rack of ribs...now, I'm struggling getting my head around it. The biggest questions being, how can I get a glaze to look like bbq sauce?

Those are the type I'd like to aim for, I have the chocolate fondant but It's the glaze I want to get absolutely perfect

Pureed jam, minus any seeds

Apricot jam mixed with a bit of strawberry or raspberry jam should give you the colour that you need, warm up slightly and brush it on, tastes good as well

Ursula, you are a genius! That never even crossed my mind

I was going to opt for a fudge sauce but the problem was that it wouldn't have that translucent, sticky look.

Thankyou so much

Glad to have helped, I love using jams, especially home made ones, that way I know exactly what's in them

Yeah I love jams too...I made my first jam out of apricots not that long ago and it was purely because I was too impacient waiting for them to ripen fully.
