Tara Grubb (Beetlebug20)

My name is Tara Grubb.  I am a stay at home Mom and have always had a passion for baking and trying new things.  My love for baking and decorating cakes started when I wanted to make my son's 1st Birthday cake.  I made a Mickey Mouse cake and loved making it.  Since then, eight years ago, I have been making and decorating cakes for friends and family.  I finally launched my Facebook page and started my home business after much encouragement from friends and family. I am always challenging myself with new techniques and ideas for decorating and baking.  My favorite part of making and decorating is the smiles on the person's face who is receiving my cake

 

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 1 Cup Semi-sweet Chocolate (chips or bar, chopped)
  • 1 1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 12 Tablespoons Unsalted or Salted Butter
  • 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Canola (or vegetable) Oil
  • 3/4 Cup Water

 

This sized recipe is best stirred gently by hand.

In a large Mixing bowl, combine the oil, chocolate, and cocoa. Add the oil to the bowl first to lubricate the sides, preventing the cocoa from sticking and forming lumps.

Bring the butter, sugar, and water just to a boil in a sauce pan. Watch carefully once it begins to simmer as it will boil over if left unattended. Pour the hot liquid over the oil, chocolate, and cocoa mixture.
