  6. This glaze can be made with different extracts. How about coffee, or chocolate? Oh, that sounds yummy! If you use coffee extract, add a teaspoon of espresso powder! The meringue powder is an excellent addition to make a perfect glaze. It hardens the top just slightly and keeps the glaze soft underneath.
