Can I make a shiny chocolate glaze by just melting chocolate and vegetable oil? Or, do I need to make one from scratch to get this effect? Can you pros tell what kind of strawberry glaze this is?
There's no picture!
But I don't think chocolate mixed with vegetable oil will give you shiny...it just thins out the chocolate. It will probably set dull. I only think that because that's how my cake pops turn out because I don't temper the chocolate at all.

I've tried to post the picture, but it won't let me. Sorry!
AAny link?!? I do a glaze on some of my cakes mixing chocolate+cream+some nice rum+vanila+spoon or two oil...looks shiny and its really tasty
That cake looks delicious!!! Wish I had a piece of that right now!!!
A tablespoon or two of corn syrup can add some glossiness too.
