Behold the Sensational Instagram Mirror Cakes

It's hard to resist these polished mirror cakes, which have been adding a touch of glamour to Instagram recently courtesy of Russian baker Olga Noskova.

Creating something of a stir for their flawless design and lush, dense colours, Noskova has captured the imagination of cake lovers all over the world, with her sensational cakes notching her up over 500,000 followers on her Instagram account.

It all began with my love for macarons,” she told Bored Panda. “Later I began to devote a lot of time to study confectionery arts. I really wanted to learn how to make European mousse cakes. My mirror glaze is the result of my experience.”

The mesmerising effect is practically unrivalled for flash design and vibrant colours, without a single icing imperfection.

For bakers looking to take on the challenge of the mirror effect, this YouTube recipe guide explains how to make the gelatin icing.  A recipe idea on Reddit also shows how to achieve the sheen look, with ingredients including ​gelatin, sugar, condensed milk, water, chocolate and glucose. Not exactly a dieter's dream, but we think you'll agree the results are worth the effort.

Take a look at some of Noskova's inspiring creations below:
