The ECG loves watching those mesmerizing mirror glaze cake videos. Watching all of those trippy colors blend into a kaleidoscope of marbled cakey gorgeousness just makes her swoon! So, she got the recipe, gathered her ingredients, plugged in her immersion blender, only to completely blow it. The icing was a hot mess, and by the time she was done, she had been through three sets of ingredients, and play time in the kitchen had turned into an existential Pinterest Crisis.
Not unlike the notoriously temperamental French Macaron, mirror glaze recipes work perfectly about 60% of the time. That's why, just like our Fool Proof Mac Mix, our new Melt and Use Mirror Glaze will make you successful in the kitchen 100% of the time. Now that's what I'm talkin' bout.
It's really just that simple! Melt the glaze in the Microwave on 30 second bursts until it is liquid, add gel food color, cool it back down to 95-100 degrees F. and pour it over a frozen buttercream or ganache covered cake or frozen Mousse Mold. Just look at these super shiny Valentine's Day cakes:

And now that you have the glaze, it's time for the new toys! We've added a full line of Silicone Baking Molds to the site so you can bake wicked awesome little cakes that pop out ready to be glazed. The ECG even fills the molds with layers of mousse and fruit and freezes them overnight before glazing them...no cake necessary. CAKE DECORATING WITHOUT CAKE...go home, ECG, you're drunk.
And with our Instant Mousse Mix and Super Sexy Flavor Pastes, you can get all Gourmet on V-Day!
