Chocolate Glacage

Joined May 27, 2010
I am looking for a recipe for "chocolate glacage" to replace the poured fondant which is too sweet for my taste. It's important that the glacage will solidify after covering the cake. I understand recipes which include gelatine will not solidify? and recipes which include "pate a glacer" are expensive because of the cost of the pate a glacer? Any suggestion for a happy medium?

1 part 33% cream

1 part chocolate

Basically, a ganache

Sets up loverly, gives off a nice shine, cheaper than anything that comes out of a bucket.

ok so the cream and chocolate receipe...THAT is ganache. a Glacage is different because of the addition of oil and/or cornsyrup. the receipe i have is perfect, well stay super shiny but like any glacage you must work fast

Oil (any kind well work) 1-2 T depending on how flowly u want the chocolate it is easier to work with, with more oil

butter 2oz

dark chocolate 6 oz

heavy cream 7 oz

Glacage and Ganache are two different things and two different consistancies, and two different preps.
