  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water cold water
  • 15 g powdered gelatin Unflavored
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup corn syrup
  • ½ cup condensed milk
  • food coloring gel


  • Sprinkle gelatin over ½ cup of cold water and let it stand for 5 minutes to bloom. In a small saucepan add water, corn syrup and sugar. Simmer over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and add condensed milk. Add to hot mixture bloomed gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add white chocolate chips to a large bowl and pour over hot mixture. Whisk vigorously. Blend mixture using a handheld blender to get rid of any remaining lumps. Run liquid through a fine mesh sieve. Liquid is now ready to be colored and poured over a chilled cake or pie.


Place ½ cup of glaze into 6 small containers add tint the glaze using food coloring gel following this proportion:
Light pink - 2 red drops
Orange - 3 and 1 red drops
Yellow - 3 yellow drops
Purple - 2 red and 1 blue drops
Blue - 2 blue drops
Green - 2 blue and 3 yellow drops
Tint the remaining glaze using red food coloring to make pink.
As it cools glaze will harden, if you feel it is not flowing enough to be poured heat it in the microwave for 5 seconds or less.
To avoid a mess line a baking sheet with plastic and in the center place a container to raise the cake like a pedestal.
When the glaze stops running you can trim the excess with scissors and transfer the to a serving plate.
