  • Cake Angels Ready To Use Glossy Chocolate Mirror Glaze 270g

    ‘Mirror, mirror, on the cake, Who’s made the most amazing bake?’ That would be… you, using Cake Angels’ super-easy, super-glossy and super-impressive Chocolate Mirror Glaze to create a finish so shiny you can see your face in it.

    What is Mirror Glaze?

    A super-shiny cake icing that’s so glossy it reflects its surroundings, mirror glaze is a huge cake decorating trend, and finishing your bake off with mirror icing is one of the easiest ways to transform a basic cake into a showstopper.

    How to Make a Mirror Glaze Cake

    You can create your own cake glaze, but you’ll need a lot of ingredients – starting with gelatine powder, liquid glucose, sugar, condensed milk, white chocolate and food colouring – and there’s some pretty meticulous work to be done with thermometers, whisks and stick blenders. The end results are amazing, but can be challenging to get right. If you want the effect of a chocolate mirror glaze cake without the effort, this little pot of heat-pour-and-set magic is exactly what you’re looking for.

    Super-easy – No Mixing, No Measuring, Just Heat and Pour

    For a stunningly shiny, super-smooth finish in just a few simple steps, cover your cake with smooth butter cream and allow to chill. Then place your cake or dessert on a wire rack above a baking tray. Warm the mirror glaze gently in the microwave for 30 seconds – three 10-second blasts will do it, with a quick stir in-between each – then pour it over your cake. Allow to set for about an hour, then admire your glossy cake creation and devour!

    Super-glossy – An Incredible Shine with No Effort

    Seeing is believing, and having seen this in action we’re total believers! Our Food Buyer, Rebecca, brought an undressed millionaire’s cheesecake to the table and said ‘give me about 40 seconds’. In that time, she microwaved and poured the glaze over the cheesecake and then brought it to the table. She had told us it would be incredibly glossy, but we were amazed when we could actually see our faces reflected back at us.

    Cake Glazed. Time Saved. Guests Amazed!

    We’ve never come across this type of product before, and were really excited by how easy it is to get an expert finish – and by the quality of the flavour too. If you’re a busy baker looking for fast results that don’t compromise on quality, this mirror cake-maker really ticks the ‘can’t live without’ box.

    How to Use Mirror Glaze

    Mirror finish cakes are all about that super-shiny surface, and what you can see in it, so they’re best kept free of much extra decoration. We’ve seen some stunning mirror glaze cakes online that gave us lots of inspiration, and we’ve made a couple ourselves – one featuring a frilly-petalled peony which reflects beautifully in the glossy glaze, and another that uses our Tiara Icing Cutters to create a fancy frame, just like the magic mirror of fairy tale fame – check out our blog to find out more. Note: Preening fairy tale villains not required. Though they are a lot of fun.

    Make Your Own

    And if this all sounds a bit too much like cheating and you’d like to make your own mirror glaze icing from scratch – or want to explore the possibilities and get creative with different colours and designs – take a look at the mirror glaze recipe, hints and tips in our blog piece How to make Mirror Glaze.
