This chocolate showstopper decorated using Mirror Glaze, Glitter Spray and Choco Writers is sure to impress, and tastes absolutely delicious too!
You will need:
• Cake Décor Chocolate Mirror Glaze
• Cake Décor Gold Glitter Spray
• Cake Décor Milk and White Choco Writers
• 3x sponge cakes
• Buttercream frosting
• Gold sprinkles – we chose large and small pearls, as well as 00s & 000s
• Layer your 3 sponge cakes with buttercream frosting and then cover the cake in a layer of frosting. Leave to set in the fridge for about an hour
• Once set, add another layer of frosting until the cake is full covered. Pop this back in the fridge to set for another few hours
• Remove the lid from your pot of Mirror Glaze and pop it in an 800W microwave on a medium heat for 30 seconds. Give the chocolate glaze a slow stir and place back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat as necessary until the chocolate is smooth and runny
• Pour the Mirror Glaze over your frosted cake and use a palette knife to encourage drips down the side
• Prepare your Choco Writer by following these simple instructions.. Place the Choco Writers in a measuring jug or large glass of boiling water and leave to melt for 2 to 3 minutes. Once the Choco Writers have softened, carefully lift them out of the water, unscrew the cap and snip off the tip of the nozzle with scissors. They’re now ready to use!
• Squeeze the Milk Choco Writer onto a sheet of acetate or greaseproof paper and spread out using a palette knife. Use the White Choco Writer to add a marble effect drizzle
• Before the chocolate sets, sprinkle the gold 00s & 000s on top. Leave to dry for 5 minutes
• Once set, carefully remove the chocolate from the paper and then break into shards. You can do this by hand or use a knife for smoother edges
• Spray the macarons with Gold Glitter Spray until completely covered
• Carefully place the chocolate shards on top of your cake, making sure to push them into your cake so they stand up
• Finish the cake with sprinklings of gold pearls and 00s & 000s
