These are a handful of the mirror marble cakes baked by Russian confectioner Olga. She uses a secret recipe to produce a glaze with an almost mirror-like reflective finish. I LOVE SECRET RECIPES SO MUCH. Actually, I love all kinds of secrets. Tell me one! This is not her recipe but allegedly this is another that will produce something similar:

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

Steps:

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.

Beautiful cakes, right? They almost look too beautiful to eat. "Then you don't get a piece." I said ALMOST. Now, I just tried making my own mirror cake, tell me what you think. "I think you just sprinkled shards of broken mirror on top of a regular cake." You think correct. They make your mouth taste like pain and blood!

Keep going for several more, including one that looks like a big blue boner pill.
