Step 1

Mix gelatin in a bowl with 1/4 cup of water. Set aside to let it bloom

Step 2

Add sugar, 3/4 cup of water, and sweetened condensed milk to a heat proof bowl

Step 3

Heat for 1 minute on high power in the microwave

Step 4

Remove the mixture, and stir to incorporate the ingredients.

Step 5

Pour in the bloomed gelatin, and stir until it's fully dissolved.

Step 6

Melt the white chocolate chips in microwave by heating it in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval.

Step 7

Once the white chocolate is fully melted, pour the chocolate into the warm gelatin mixture. Carefully whisk mixture until fully combined.

Step 8

Continue to stir occasionally (to prevent a skin from forming), until the glaze has reached 90 degrees, or is just slightly warm to the touch.

Step 9

Divide the glaze and color them different shades using gel food coloring if desired.

Step 10

Once the glazes have cooled slightly, pour them back into one large bowl, alternating colors

Step 11

*To Glaze Cake

Step 12

Place a chilled buttercream cake (Chill in the freezer at least 1 hour) on top of a circular object smaller than the cake board, and set this on top of a wire rack over a large baking sheet (to catch the run-off glaze).

Step 13

Begin pouring the glaze onto the center of the cake, then slowly work out to the edges of the cake in a circular motion until the cake is fully covered.

Step 14

Let the glaze continue to drip for about 10 minutes, then scrape away excess glaze from the bottom of the cake board using a small offset spatula.
