Glaze drips

  • 90 grams (3.2 ounces) white chocolate
  • 40 grams (1.4 ounces / 2.7 tablespoons) cream 33%
  • 1 teaspoon titanium dioxide


  • Microwave

    Ensure it has interval settings for precise heating. A powerful microwave increases efficiency.

  • Glass Bottle

    Preferably chilled in the fridge beforehand, it's perfect for testing the glaze consistency.

  • Metal Spoon

    For stirring the ganache, ensuring smooth, even mixing.


Step 1

Do you always struggle to get the perfect glaze drips on your cakes? Creating beautiful chocolate smudges can be challenging. They often don't work or even crack. To decorate the cake perfectly, follow this recipe.

Step 2

1. Place the cream and white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Use a bowl large enough to allow the chocolate and cream to mix well.

Step 3

2. Heat the mixture in the microwave in 15-second intervals until the chocolate starts flowing from the spoon in a stream (not drip, but drain). Stir the mixture in between each interval to ensure even melting.

Step 4

3. Check the readiness of the ganache on a glass bottle placed in the fridge. If the ganache drips and freezes on the bottle just like it should on the cake, then it’s ready.

Step 5

4. Ensure your cake is well chilled before decorating. A cold cake will help the ganache set properly and create those desired drips.

Step 6

5. Decorate the cake with the ganache immediately. Work quickly to achieve the best results.

Step 7

That's it! Enjoy your beautifully decorated cake.
