Sure your not talking about ganache? Heres one from Master Cook 9 it uses an invert sugar, corn syrup or glucose.

Forgive my youthful ignorance but what are the differences in the finished product between ganache and glacage? I realize that ganache uses actual chocolate while glacage uses just cocoa.

Is glacage just used for it's name sake? Glazing and the like?

A Glacage is also used in cooking. It is a blend of unsweetened whipped cream and Hollandaise or mornay, or other sauce placed on top of a dish then lightly browned under the Salamander. Like for example Filet of Sole Bonne Femme.:D

auzzi nailed that one. Glazes of that type look great, taste great, have a great mouthfeel and are fairly easy to work with.
The cocoa/gelatin glazes are quick, very easy to work with and produce a smooth shiny finish but are not nearly as tasty and the texture isn't even in the same league. It does have the benefit of being easy to lift off of whatever you're working on once it sets for a couple minutes if you screw up. It sets as a gelee-like layer that will peel right off.
