Back in February I had a go at my first mirror glaze cake. This weekend I was asked to make a dessert for a birthday dinner and decided to give a different mirror glaze technique a go.
It was a cold morning while I was “glazing” and unfortunately the smaller bowls of coloured glaze started to set up before I had used them. I really should have given them a quick blast in the microwave before pouring, but you live and learn!
The result wasn’t perfect but still looked pretty. I used a hairdryer to help mix the different glazes and the heat helped a little. There’s a quick video of the hair dryer in use on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
Inside was a layered mousse cake. Chocolate sponge, strawberry jelly, and strawberry mousse layers, all covered with chocolate mousse and then the mirror glaze.
I really enjoy making these mirror glaze cakes so will have another go soon!
