These Magical Mirror Cakes Are Taking The Web By Storm

I saw these mystical cakes floating around the interwebs and thought it would be fun to make an article on it. I’ve never seen cakes like this before! Like, I’ve seen glossy cakes, but these are straight up cosmic mirrors. The Russian baker, Olga Noskova, was recently recognized for her special talent in cake making.
These designs all look like actual glass, or like you’re peering into a distant galaxy.

“This is my art, for which I am inspired by nature and different tastes and I make my cakes, that people love, as I learned,”she told told RT in an interview.

So how exactly is this intense shine created? It is an old French technique, dating way back 40 to 50 years. It is essentially, gelatin, sugar and water as the base, and different ingredients can be added to create different effects. Simple, right?

You need to pour it onto of already frosted cakes, other wise the cake itself absorbs the glaze like a sponge.

The way she does it is so similar to a painting, or in some cases an actual universe. The exact method of how those incredible details are created remains only known to the creator!

This is art! It is so much more than just food to eat. It actually evokes something within us; it intrigues us.
