A fascinating mirror glaze on desserts can stir up the mind of domestic cooks.
And honestly, I previously thought, until I tried it myself at home, that such cakes, "dressed" in glossy icing - a simple photoshop.

Only here to cook is half the work. And how now, then put it on the cake to get such a stunning glossy beauty? And it's very simple, only you need to know the technology, which we'll talk about right now, and bake a "suitable" cake (souffle, mousse).
So, the exciting moment in the cooking process. The cake is waiting for the decoration, and the glaze is ready, covered with food film and waits for its "exit" from the refrigerator.
Stunning mirror desserts excite the minds so far, even those who have already independently tried to create such masterpieces. A couple of drawbacks of the mirror coating all exist:
- make a photograph of the dessert hard enough to not reflect on the surface of the cake or cake;
- a very sweet coating of a mirror glaze when cutting a dessert can stretch behind a knife.
If it is difficult to shoot without reflection, it does not matter - well,let reflects what confirms the name of the glaze. But beautifully and without damage cut the cake, covered with gloss can be, if you use a slightly warmed knife, and work with a cold, almost frozen dessert. It is possible to effectively cut a confectionery item with a knife at room temperature, if it is simple and do not freeze the dessert at all.
The rest of the secrets and subtleties of applying capricious glaze can be recognized from the process itself, which is presented below.

We take out the frozen dessert from the freezer, and then out of the mold, if it was stored in the original baking position.

Then simply fill the surface, adhering to the middle, or pour out gradually the liquid around the perimeter to cover the sides of the product with a glance.
