It has long been stated that one eats with your eyes first. In this case, it seems criminal to eat any of these cakes. I would hate to be the person to cut the first slice!

A Russian Patissier named Olga Noskova’s Instagram account is full of beautiful, perfectly glazed cakes that look like pieces of art.

The galaxy-like marble effect is achieved by pouring multiple layers of glaze over freshly baked cakes. This technique is called a mirror glaze and it’s done by creating a thick and shiny coating using gelatin.

Redditor, SuperDrew124, has come up with a copycat recipe so that you can attempt to achieve your own perfect, mirror glazed cake at home:

20g Gelatin Powder, 120g Water, 300g Glucose, 300g Sugar, 150g Water, 200g Sweetened Condensed Milk, 300g Chocolate (White, Milk, Dark, or a combination), Food Coloring

Bloom the gelatin in the water.
Boil the glucose, sugar and water.
Remove from heat and add the gelatin.
Add the condensed milk.
Pour over chocolate and buerre mix to remove air bubbles.
Use at 35C/95F
