to begin with, i am not a great cake baker and i am comfortable with baking basic cakes in the cooker or in the oven. but as a blogger you need to push yourself to your limits. for instance, i knew about this recipe of mirror glaze and i was always a huge fan of this recipe. but i never thought that one day i would be even attempting this recipe. to keep things straight, this is my fourth attempt on this recipe. there are many variables with this recipe. to begin with, the cake itself, which has to be moist in the first place. the frosting on the other hand has to be smooth and has to be applied evenly all over the cake. finally, the gloss from the glaze has to be silky smooth. it has to be really smooth and has to be poured in a certain angle so that it gets spread evenly and accurately. each time while i was attempting, i use to make some mistakes, but learn from those mistakes. therefore, i can easily confirm and confident about this recipe and is a fail-proof recipe.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to the mirror glaze cake recipe. firstly, if you have observed the videos, there are 3 major steps in this recipe. the cake preparation, cake frosting and the silky smooth glaze. each step is crucial but can be easily mixed and matched. for instance, you may use vanilla cake or white frosting or even milk chocolates to prepare the white gloss. secondly, the key ingredients to make any cake moist is to use oil and sugar. avoid using butter and when cooking oil is mixed with a sufficient amount of sugar, it turns to be a moist cake. lastly, the chocolate glaze turns solid or loses its shine quickly and hence you may need to pour it just before serving it. also, it may lose its shine if it is rested in the refrigerator. you may need to keep in room temperature to have that silky shiny glossy cake.
