Hola, estoy intrigada con una pregunta que hizo una compañera en el foro de inglés. Ella pregunta como se puede obtener una terminación brillante, como espejo, sobre los cakes. En el post hablan de esta técnica que se ilustra en estas fotos:

Para mí parece el caramelo que le ponemos a los flanes. Las chicas dicen que es un ganache de chocolate que le añaden corn syrup y gelatina sin sabor. Ella hace el efecto con diferentes colores, ¿cómo es que lo hace? ¿Qué opinan ustedes? ¿Han visto o han hecho algo así?

Gracias.

Vi esta receta:
Heres a basic lemon mirror suitable for glazing a 9-inch diameter surface. Perhaps this basic recipe may not comply with the level of sophistication in which you regularly work. Yet, it may satisfy the purpose for some, shall we say, less fastidious patissieres...

1½ tsps unflavored gelatin
1 fl. oz. purified cold water
6 fl. oz. boiling water
1/3 cup superfine sugar
pinch of salt
2 fl. oz. strained fresh lemon juice
Few drops of yellow food coloring (opt.)

Soften gelatin in cold water. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add sugar & salt; stir until dissolved. Blend in citrus juice & coloring. Set bowl in larger vessel filled with ice and let stand until mixture is syrupy and begins to thicken, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes do not let set. Brush paper-thin layer of mixture over top of cake (or, I suppose, a bavarian). Refrigerate until set. Pour second layer over; total thickness should not exceed 3/16 inch. Refrigerate until mirror is set to preferred consistency.

BTW, Ms. Greenspan notes that Chef Hermés Transparent Glaze -- flavored with lemon, orange, & vanilla -- can be stored airtight in the refrigerator for a week or the freezer for a month. (p. 3icon_cool.gif
