To create pretty, slow drips down the side of a cake, let the glaze cool slightly so it thickens a bit. This glaze is shown on Chocolate Beet Cake, but would complement any cake.


  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • ¾ teaspoon light corn syrup

  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped


  1. Bring heavy cream and corn syrup to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan. Pour over chocolate in a bowl, and let stand for 1 minute. Stir until chocolate melts and mixture is shiny and smooth. Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Use immediately.
