You’ve probably seen many times in the past how pastry chefs transform the simplest of ingredients into high art that could be put in display in the biggest art museums in the world. Unfortunately, not many people recognize food art as real art, but they forget one very important thing. Art is characterized as any form of expression of someone’s creativity, feelings and thoughts. This is exactly what a pastry chef does. They use their mind and soul in order to create a dessert that will thrill one’s eyes and palate.
Olga Noskova is a Russian pastry chef and artist, who goes past the boundaries of pastry making and creates art using cakes.
Olga Noskova is one of the very best pastry chefs in the category of mirror cakes and her efforts have been widely noticed.
She is currently living in Ufa, Russia, where she makes her cakes and posts their photos on Instagram.
She has a massive instagram follow group of 583k people and it seems that she doesn’t need a shop to become famous.
Olga has posted a video on her account about how she pours the icing on the cake, but she hasn’t shared the complete guide to her art.
There is a theory that says that in order to achieve this mirror effect, the pastry chef uses gelatin, boiled glucose, sugar, water, and condensed milk.
This mixture is poured over the cake, using a thickening mix called beurre manié to remove any air bubbles.
We don’t know if that is her method, but it sounds convincing, although I would prefer a little mystery.
Olga was the first to ever prepare a mirror cake and since her efforts were noticed more and more people are making an Instagram career out of preparing mirror cakes and many other pastry chefs bake those for their customers. Once again the internet era has done its magic.
