Often times the best topping on a cake or cupcake is a simple glaze. With the right recipe, a glaze is an easy way to make your dessert look polished and complete. The best thing about a glaze it that it requires just a few ingredients and very little prep time.


3/4 cup of heavy cream

6 ounces of chopped, bittersweet chocolate (choose a high quality chocolate for best flavor)

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon instant coffee


Mix all of your ingredients in a saucepan. Use low heat until the sauce is a smooth texture. Remove from the heat. The mixture will begin to harden if cooled too long. Simply apply to low heat again until you get a smooth consistency.

You can use the glaze to drizzle over any cake or dip the tops of cupcakes directly into the mixture to create a smooth topping.
