15

Add chocolate and cream into pot over low heat and stir until chocolate is melted.

16

Place cake on airing rack inside a cookie sheet to catch chocolate overflow

17

Set aside to cool for approximately 10 minutes before pouring onto cake. Glaze should be cooled until you can pour it and it slowly covers cake (not runny)

Notes
18

My variation of this Zebra Bundt cake. Added preserves, lowered sugar to account to preserves and increased chocolate glaze slightly.

19

Flecks of raspberry can be seen in cake for a more visual effect a small amount of red food coloring can be added to the white batter.
