Mirror Glaze Cake

Some weeks ago I was browsing the “Pirkka” magazine and saw the beautiful picture of a mirror glaze cake. I read the recipe for several times and said to my husband. I will make this cake for Mother’s Day on May 14 which also, this year, happens to be our 50-years wedding anniversary. I read the recipe very thoroughly, again and again. I wanted to avoid mistakes. Everything looked so good, even the glaze until I poured it onto the cake. I have no idea what went wrong but the glaze was too thick and looked lumpy. Not at all like the one in “Pirkka” or like the gorgeous ones I looked up on Google. My husband said, don’t worry about the look as long as it’s edible I’m happy. It was edible and pretty yummy too. But, I give up, no more mirror glaze cakes for me. At least for now 😉Mirror glaze cake / mango cheesecakeMirror glaze cake / mango cheesecake

      Thank you for asking. The mousse, main taste is the mango as there is 4 dl of mango purée + also a little of lemon . The glaze is very sweet. It has white chocolate, glucose syrup and condensed milk. It was quite good 🙂
