Russian baker Olga Noskova makes “mirror cakes” using a mirror glaze. She has 350,000 Instagram followers and counting.
Noskova’s exact glaze recipe is secret, but Culinary Institute of America baking and pastry dean Thomas Vaccaro said that mirror glazes have been around for 30-40 years. Vaccaro went on to say that mirror glazes are
essentially gelatin, sugar, and water, but mirror glazes can have many variations to add flavor and color. The glaze can be applied to an array of desserts finished with a cream—you wouldn’t want to apply directly to an unfrosted cake, because it would absorb the glaze like a sponge. But on a frosted cake, the glaze will completely enrobe the cake, then set up on top.
Temperature also plays a part: Bringing the mixture down from boiling to a lower temperature, 110˚ to 120˚, is the key to getting that shine when you pour the glaze; it then sets when it cools at 87˚.
Vaccaro even provided a recipe for a chocolate mirror glaze:

2. Boil the sugar, water, cocoa, and crème fraiche.
3. Squeeze out the excess water from the gelatine and add. Strain through a chinois.

‘The Fate of the Furious’ on Track to Become 2017’s Next $100M-Plus Opening
With “Beauty and the Beast” locking in the first $100+ million opening at the box office in 2017, it is expected to soon be joined by “The Fate of the Furious,” the eighth film in Universal’s unstoppable “Fast & Furious” franchise.
Early trackers project an opening weekend for “Fate” somewhere between $110-120 million. If it exceeds those expectations — which it is likely to do given the star power of its lead men, Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel — it would find itself in the same ballpark as the $135 million opening that “Fast & Furious 6” made in 2013.
But the brass ring that “Fate” is aiming for is the whopping $191.9 million made domestically by its 2015 predecessor, “Furious 7.” Globally, “Furious 7” made $397.6 million in its opening weekend — still in the top five biggest openings of all-time — before blowing by the $1 billion mark in just 17 days and reaching a final cume of $1.5 billion. The film became one of the most anticipated releases of 2015 after the death of long-time “F&F” star Paul Walker, which resulted in “Furious 7” being delayed so Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, could be written out of the series tastefully, and a tribute to Walker could be added to the end of the film.
Like “Furious 7,” “Fate” will have the benefit of being the biggest release in an April that otherwise has very little buzz. The only other major release next month is Sony Pictures Animations’ “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” which will come out a week before “Fate.” With the two films targeting different audiences and the latter half of April serving as a brief pause for major studios before “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” kicks off the summer blockbuster season, “The Fate of the Furious” will find itself with a good chance to try and match “Furious 7”‘s haul.
“The Fate of the Furious” will feature Charlize Theron as Cipher, a criminal who manages to turn Dominic Toretto (Diesel) against Luke Hobbs (Johnson), his wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and his former team. Shocked and confused by Dominic’s betrayal, Hobbs must rally the rest of the “Family” to stop him and Cipher.
Directed by F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) and written by longtime “F&F” scribe Chris Morgan, the film also stars Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell. Diesel, Neal H. Moritz and Michael Fottrell are producers.
