I recommend topping the top with a little syrup prepared from water, sugar, vanilla, coffee, etc. Put the cream over the cooled countertop, spread and level well.

Put it in the fridge or cold - during this time prepare the glaze:

- Melt in a saucepan the dark chocolate, 2 tablespoons of milk and 50g of butter - mix well and after they melt and incorporate all, let cool well.

Pour the glaze just warm (be careful, if it is too hot, it will melt the butter and spoil the cream a little).

Level and cool.
