what do you cover the cake with before the glaze, just regular icing ????
Yes, I used buttercream frosting for this video
Should I cover the cake with buttercream
Yes, cover in butter cream, then let the butter cream set in the refrigerator or freezer
Csn you pks advice if i can replace the corn syrop with glocose?
Yes, you can use glucose in place of the corn syrup; they’re very similar 🙂
The recipe calls for 4/5 cups of corn syrup . Which is it exactly ? Thks !
It’s 4/5-ths of a cup, or 200ml if you have ml on your measuring cup.
Will this be sufficient for a 10 inch round cake or an 8inch?
Yes, there’s definitely enough for a 10-inch cake 🙂
For how long I can store it in the Refrigerator?
Do I have to use thermometer to check if it reached you 90 degree?
Thank for ur lovely recpies ❤
The glaze can be stored for a while, up to a week I think… You don’t have to use a thermometer, just make sure the glaze has thickened enough that it would just run off the cake
What is corn syrup, can I use an alternative? What do you do with the left over glaze?
Corn syrup is very similar to glucose; interchangeable in this recipe! Keep the glaze in a glass container, covered with plastic wrap and in the refrigerator
To cut the cake do I need to heat the knife ,or does it cut ok?
Allow the mirror glaze to set for at least a few hours before cutting into it. I find that once it’s set, it’s easier to cut. A heated knife would work great, too! 🙂
Thank you Tatyana, this looks amazing…I will try for sure
Do you have a substitute for sweetened condensed milk? It’s almost impossible to find where i live.
I’m so sorry, I don’t know what you could replace it with… Have you tried purchasing it online?
Hi .can I glaze the cake and leave in the fridge overnight for the next day. Is the glaze effect still ok?
Yes, the glaze needs to be refrigerated either way and it will stay glossy :0
What the kind of colors used in this glaz gel base of fondant or oil base of chocolate thanks
I used concentrated gel food coloring; I’m not sure about the chocolate base…
Can i use agaragar or carageenan instead of gelatin? Thanks.
I think agar should work with this recipe, too. The only difference is that agar sets at a higher temperature
Can the baked cake be put into the freezer after it is iced? Or will the icing end up cracking.
I would like to make ahead for a birthday 1 week from now.
Hmm, I’m not sure about freezing the cake… I haven’t tried freezing the icing, it might crack. The cake will be fine in the fridge for 3-4 days
Can I substitute glucose for the corn syrup? If so would I use the same amount of glucose? Thank you
Yes! Glucose and corn syrup are very similar; use the same amount 🙂
Where do you get the gelatain
Most grocery stores will carry the unflavored gelatin right next to jello 🙂
For how long can I put the cake out for display?
I do recommend keeping the cake refrigerated but it should be just fine on display for a few hours
Is the recipe the same if you are going to use dark chocolate?
Yes, dark chocolate should work well, too 🙂
Is it possible to make the mirror glaze without gelatin or agar to avoid the chewy texture? It’s difficult to cut, peels off the cake and I really don’t like the texture in my mouth…
Hi! I know exactly what you mean! The gelatin is what helps keep the glaze together so I don’t think it will work with out it. If you really want a glaze, you can try using chocolate ganache, same as I use for drip cakes. It can be poured over the entire cake. It won’t be the same but close to 🙂
