Has anyone ever made a white chocolate variation of mirror glaze, so that you can tint it with gel coloring?

 

Thanks!

Thanks Brandi!  Do you ever use this on anything other than cakes?  I was wondering about petit fours or as eclair icing, as my eclair fondant recipe contains white chocolate, but no gelatin.

AMousse cakes and bombes are all I've ever needed to coat with a glaze..
