Hello. I would like to congratulate you on your efford here, the forum looks nice and you are doing a great job.
I have one question i d like to ask you and I would appreciate it if I got an answer to it: When i follow the recipies to make a glace for my cakes or other sweets, it always ends up to be a soft topping, something that I dont really like. My question is how can i make the hard kind of glace how can i make it be hardened on top of my cakes . Thank you

I have tried first with chocolate and powder sugar. Then I tried with egg whites and powder sugar. Finally i tried powder sugar with hot water only. It always ends up soft not crusty as i would like. I tried on big and small cakes even on little cookies. Any recommendations?

so you are looking for a frosting, like a Duncan Hines canned frosting to frost your cakes? or a smooth glaze for coffee cakes and danish?
