Hi elaine77

It can be softened in the microwave slowly. Do 10 seconds at a time . Mix it to distribute the heat until it it comes to working consistency.
Use a plastic bowl, glass holds the heat which could overheat the chocolate. Gently does it, decrease the seconds until you’re happy. 🙂

It has to be soft enough to spread without tearing your cake. If it’s too runny, it will slide off but it will begin to thicken to a spreadable consistency as you keep working it.
