Jacques Torres's Shiny Chocolate Glaze
Gelatin is the key to a glistening chocolate glaze that stays put on your cake. Jacques Torres prepared this recipe with Martha on Episode 501 of "Martha Bakes."
This recipe makes enough glaze for one 8" two-layer cake. Pour over chilled crumb-coated cake placed on a wire rack set over a large bowl. Use an offset spatula to smooth out the glaze. Work quickly as the glaze will set up in a minute or less.
