How to Make Cocoa Glace Icing

  • Put iced sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl. Sifting is not required, unless it is very lumpy.
  • Pour water, stir to mix, and gently heat it.
  • When it gets fully dissolved, add colour and essence, and mix it evenly.
  • Pour immediately onto cake. Spread it evenly, allowing it to flow over the sides.
  • Run a knife dipped in hot water to even it out on the top.
  • Allow it to cool completely before touching it for further decorations.
