This has nothing to do with KidLit, fantasy, or sci-fi. But it relates to CAKE! From cake artisan Olga Noskovaa and the mad geniuses at Bored Panda.
“Russian confectioner Olga makes sweets that look like marbled mirrors. Although little is known about her, Olga’s Instagram is a source of envy for many. Luckily, 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.”
