Creating Shiny Glazes on Cakes Is Magical to Watch

This isn’t your typical pastry glaze. The super glossy, mirror effect in the above video is achieved by pouring a glaze over a frosted or frozen cake. Most recipes call for a white chocolate mixture for best results. This technique will add a sheen over your cake, in any hue you desire to create with food coloring. Patterns can then be created by etching, drizzling extra frosting, or simply tapping a utensil against the glaze—which will produce natural, irregular markings on the cake. You have to see it to believe it; the cake really takes on an incredibly shiny, race car polish!
