The latest trend is the mirror glaze in the cake world. A well shiny and a mirror like glaze gives any cake an elegant look and a glossy effect.Its so simple and easy to make too. Its just pouring a simple gelatinized mixture over a frozen cake.
If you want a cake with a smooth surface Ithink the mirror gaze is the best. The cake needs to be frozen. So when the gelatin hits the frozen cake it sets in no time. gelatin is the most important ingredient in a mirror glaze. Glucose syrup helps the mixture from crystallizing. Condensed milk helps the mixture to flow. White chocolate used for colouring and you can use milk or dark chocolate for brown colour.

Sago/ or Tapioca pearl is a common and a famous dessert in Asian Countries. It comes in two forms, Larger pearls and smaller pearls. Smaller pearls are very easy to cook and it needs no soaking at all. But when you cook larger pearls make sure to soak it few hours . When you soak it puffs up well. if not you will see an uncooked middle.
Cooking sago is simple and easy. You can use fresh milk or coconut milk for this. They both gives a creamier and a rich taste to it. Adding Jelly makes it look elegant and colorful. Select the flavours as you wish. I used raspberry jelly for this recipe.
You can make these jelly and sago the day before you serve. Can be done is a larger tray too. But don’t forget that it can go messy too.

Sponge cakes are always popular for birthday cakes. You will see so many recipes but will not see the secret ingredient they use. Always looks awesome. But when you try , you will not get the same. So I am trying to unveil the commercial way of doing a good sponge wich will be same look the taste and also the texture just as from the bakery or a cake store.
Cake emulsifiers are the secret in a sponge cake. You will be able to buy them online. I always buy my ingredients online. That’s the most convenient way for saving time. How ever once you mix the emulsifier to a sponge cake it comes the same way as you get in a shop. So easy to layer. You can do cupcakes too this way too.
When you do this recipe first preheat oven to 180 and reduce to 160c later before adding the cake. I have asked you to use a 6×6 inch pan as I find that is the best.

Homemade marshmallow is the best when you compare with the shop bought ones. You can make fifty pieces from less than 5 dollars. Its so simple and easy to make too. Gelatin , sugar and the glucose syrup are the main ingredients for making marshmallows. Glucose syrup is called as corn syrup in countries.
Making these gives much fun as well as self satisfaction. You can use marshmallows on hot chocolate, smores and also when camping. Kids will love to burn the marshmallows over the camp fire.
You can make them with egg whites too. But these are the best as I suggest. Making candy is really simple when you have a candy thermometer. Its worth having one if you are someone who like to make candies or fudges.
When you coat the marshmallows make sure to coat them with half corn flour and half confectioners sugar, also called as icing sugar.I have missed that clip when I did the video. make sure to coat on the corn flour and icing sugar mix well before sifting the excess sugar out.
I did this recipe with lots of adjustment and with my previous experience. So this recipe is guaranteed 100% to get good quality marshmallows as the same as from shops.
The recipe for the Marshmallows are below………

After making this cake on a Sunday I took several pieces to work on Monday.All my friends were asking how I made that. I promised to to give the recipe but to tell you the truth I am posting the recipe may be after 4 months. 🙂 Hope they will grab it. Shh………
This cake goes well with a cup of coffee but I really prefer to serve this as a dessert because of the moistness and the richness. The nuts and the condensed milk on top of this cake makes this such a rich but simple cake. The nutty flavours coming out from the pistachio gives a unique taste to this.
If you like you can always add any kind of a nut to this cake with out a problem. I like to serve this cake with hot custard or cold to make it melt in mouth after a meal.
