It probably doesn’t surprise you, but I am addicted to watching cooking and baking shows on TV! I’ve found a few that I love on Netflix.
Not only are these shows entertaining, but they are a great way to get inspiration for my blog and learn about new techniques to try.
One technique that I always find so mesmerizing is a mirror glaze. I’ve been dying to try it myself!
Making this cake is a bit of an undertaking, but don’t let that scare you away! The end result is totally worth the effort. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to let the cake set in the refrigerator in between layers and once it’s all assembled.
Let’s talk about the layers of this beauty! The first layer is a homemade, from-scratch chocolate cake. It’s adapted from my Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Layer Cake. This cake is light and fluffy and has a rich, chocolate taste.
The second layer is a raspberry mousse that is made with fresh raspberries. It’s creamy and just a little bit tart. This layer adds just the right amount of contrast to balance out all of the chocolate in this cake.
The third layer is a chocolate mousse. Sweet, creamy, rich and chocolatey! If you’ve never made homemade mousse before, don’t worry! It’s actually quite simple to make, but it looks (and tastes!) so impressive once it’s done.
On top of those three delicious layers is a stunning mirror glaze. I may have created a monster by learning how to make mirror glaze. Now I want to mirror glaze everything! It is so much fun to pour it over the cake and watch it drizzle down the sides.
