From Stacey Doyle | Little Figgy: "For Bundt cakes, I like to generously it spoon it on the top and let it cascade down the sides. For muffins or cupcakes, my favorite way is to pull off the paper liners, then dip the tops, swirling it around a bit, into room temperature chocolate ganache. For loaves, I'll chill the ganache for 30 minutes then spread it like a thick icing."
