To make the glaze, you need to melt chocolate pieces with milk on a water bath. Put pieces of chocolate into small pan, and this pan put into other, larger pan with water. Put on stove and heat, look that the water doesn’t get into chocolate. Add some milk (or oil) and stir. The density of glaze depends on the amount of milk.

When the chocolate melts, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Then pour the cake with glaze.
