Mirror Glaze Cakes Masterclass with Yolande Stanley MCA

Mirror glazes are the latest trend in the baking world and most fashionable used on individual dome cakes.  In this hands on class you will create your own, beautifully flavoured, visually stunning mirror glaze dome cake and learn some classic patisserie skills along the way.   From a biscuit base to a double mousse dome shaped insert to the mirror glaze itself together with ideas for decorations to finish your cake beautifully, there will be plenty of techniques to practise under the expert eye of Yolande Stanley MCA.  Yolande will give you plenty of hints and tips on how to use your new found skills to create other items of entremet.  Please note: mirror glazes use both gelatine and chocolate.
