When you don’t want to ice a cake, glaze it. SAM

1 tablespoon shortening
1/4 cup water
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
Dash of salt

In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt the chocolate and shortening. Add the water. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and salt and gradually stir into the chocolate mixture, blending well. Stir in the vanilla and walnuts. Pour over the cooled German Chocolate Pound Cake.
Makes 1 1/2 cups or enough for one 9-inch stem cake.
