Baking can be a piece of cake if you use the right products. Some cakes can be a little intimidating if you don’t have the correct recipe, baking racks, ingredients, or even oven!
If you’re thinking of a uniquely delicious cake to add to your arsenal, then look no further. Here is one of the best treats you can make - a mirror glaze cake. This masterpiece is achievable in just 6 steps!
The gorgeous cake will give you an iridescent, out of this world coating in 6 easy steps with the help of our awesome baking racks.
Enough talking, let’s get cracking!
Step 1: Freeze your delicious frosted cake for 2 hours or until it becomes firm. In the meantime, prepare your glazing station by grabbing one of your baking racks and placing it over a sheet pan.
Step 2: Now it’s time to work on our gelatin. Using a half cup of water, sprinkle 3 envelopes of powder gelatin into a bowl and stir. Allow your mixture to bloom for about 5-10 minutes.
Step 3: Use another half cup of water to mix 1 ½ of granulated sugar and 7 oz. sweetened condensed milk into a pan and simmer over medium heat. Once hot, remove pan from heat and whisk in bloomed gelatin.
Step 4: Chop 12oz. of white chocolate and place in a large, heat-safe bowl and pour in your mixture. Stir gently to melt the chocolate, and then use an immersion blender to smooth mixture. Pour back into the saucepan using a fine-mesh sieve to prevent air bubbles.
Step 5: Divide your mixture into 3 bowls and add some drops of food colouring with desired colours and stir gently. Repeat this step with the base colour but in a larger bowl and with a few smaller accent colours. Add mixture to a large measuring cup.
Step 6: Let your glaze cool to 95°F exactly. For the meantime, place your chilled cake on your previously assembled baking rack. Once cooled, pour your glaze gently over the cake beginning from the center. Once done, leave it to set prior to serving.
Bonus Step: Enjoy!
Here are some quick tips will help you achieve the best results:
- Chill your cake ahead of time.
- Do not whisk or stir the glaze vigorously to avoid the formation of air bubbles.
- Use a precise temperature of 95°F when pouring the glaze.
- Use a buttercream to frost a smooth surface.
