  • Place in freezer overnight. Remove frozen cake from jellyroll pan by inverting onto a piece of parchment paper. Cut into small squares with a serrated knife. Place squares onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze a minimum of 1/2 hour or until ready to glaze.
  • CHOCOLATE GLAZE: Combine powdered sugar, water and light corn syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture is blended well and is smooth and appears shiny. Remove mixture from heat, stir in almond extract and chocolate. Continue to stir until chocolate has completely melted. If necessary, place over low heat again.
