Glaze suggestions for whipped cream cake?

I made a whipped cream bundt cake, flavored only with vanilla, as a complement to a chocolate birthday cake. It's a Rose Levy Beranbaum recipe which I haven't made before, and the directions call for just a dusting of powdered sugar. I'm not a fan of powdered sugar, so would probably simply leave it plain or drizzle a light citrus glaze on top.

Has anyone made this cake, or have any ideas what else could be done to give this cake a bit more contrast? No fresh berries on hand right now, unfortunately. Thanks.

  1. The first thing I thought of was a lemon glaze. I did also see a recipe for a glaze made with the Biscoff cookie spread that kind of fascinated me; I don't know if that would be too heavy or intense for a cake that sounds rather delicate, though.

      Thanks, I think I'll go with the citrus glaze.

      Can you share the Biscoff glaze recipe? I'm having a hard time visualizing it on this or any cake! By the way, I just tried 'crunchy' Biscoff for the first time...interesting.

        I thought it sounded strange, too, but I was intrigued by the idea of the cookie spread's spiciness cutting the sugariness you usually taste in a glaze.

        Here is the recipe I saw--I didn't try it. This one goes with a chocolate Bundt cake.


        For the glaze:
        - ¼ cup Biscoff spread (or Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter
        )- ¼ cup heavy cream
        - 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
        - 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
        - few tablespoons whole milk

        To make the glaze: In a small bowl, add the cookie butter, cream, powdered sugar and corn syrup. Whisk until smooth. Add milk, about a tablespoon or less at a time, to achieve desired consistency.
