Russian confectioner Olga Noskova creates cakes that look like they’re made of porcelain or polished marble. Noskova posts her creations on her popular Instagram account.
Reddit user SuperDrew124 shared the secret behind this mirror-like glaze:
Ingredients: 20 g Gelatin Powder, 120 g Water, 300 g Glucose, 300 g Sugar, 150 g Water, 200 g Sweetened Cond Milk, 300 g Chocolate (White, Milk, Dark or a combination), Food Coloring
1) Bloom the gelatin in the water;
2) Boil the glucose, sugar & water;
3) Remove from heat and add the gelatin;
4) Add the cond milk;
5) Pour over chocolate and buerre mix to remove air bubbles;
Use at 35C/95F.
The marbling effect is achieved by pouring different color glazes together over the cake.
