This was my first attempt at making a mirror glaze cake since my master class in December. I was both nervous and excited to try it out!
The center layer was kiwi jelly surrounded by a creme Anglais soft cream.
The outside mousse layer was a mango mousse with a base of almond Joconde and almond crumble.
Then the real magic happens! I was so happy at this point when I saw that the glazed cake had turned out the way that I wanted it to! There were things that I can improve on next time as I had a few air bubbles in my mirror glaze and I didn't pour enough glaze in a few places. Overall though, for a first try, I'm very happy with the results.
It looks nice when it's sliced too. I'm already planning the next mirror glaze cake. I think I am officially hooked! :)
I had a friend cancel plans at the last minute and I used my free Friday night to try out this recipe from Christina Tosi's latest cookbook, All About Cake. This pile of deliciousness was dulce de leche cake layers soaked in milk topped with dulce de leche, milk crumbs and dulce de leche frosting. The frosting was amazing! This one would definitely be worth making again!!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
