Almost Too Pretty to Eat  藝術品等級!美豔精緻的鏡面蛋糕

by Daniel Howard

Mirror cakes are the beautiful desserts that nearly broke the internet.
鏡面蛋糕是一種在網路上幾乎人人都在討論的美麗甜點。

    

  Food trends come and go, especially on Instagram. Beautiful food is a common feature on social media, but one dessert seems to be here to stay: mirror cakes.
  Mirror cakes are high-class cakes that have been decorated with shiny, multicolored icing. The patterns can make them look like marble, outer space, or just several layers of beautiful colors. Made from top-quality ingredients with unique flavor combinations in the fillings, the cakes are really known for their icing.
  Though mirror cakes have been around for a while, their recent popularity can be tracked to a Russian baker named Olga Noskova. At first, she started by making French macarons, and she soon progressed to the very beautiful cakes that made her a viral internet sensation. Noskova started baking cakes because she wanted to have something beautiful and delicious to enjoy, but baking amazing cakes quickly became her full-time job.
  Instagram and YouTube fame has earned Noskova hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of views of her photos and videos of cake. She is able to charge clients ridiculously high prices for her cakes, which can be worth up to US$80 per kilogram. Her popularity has grown to the point that Noskova’s talents are in demand around the world, and she is expanding her pastry business into new locations, including Dubai. She also teaches courses around the world to the next generation of pastry chefs.

藝術品等級!美豔精緻的鏡面蛋糕
鏡面蛋糕是一種在網路上幾乎人人都在討論的美麗甜點。

  

   食物潮流來來去去,在 Instagram 上更是如此。漂亮的食物在社群媒體上很常見,但有一種甜點似乎不退流行:鏡面蛋糕。
  鏡面蛋糕是以閃亮多彩糖霜作為裝飾的高級蛋糕。其圖案能讓它們看起來像大理石、外太空或僅是幾層美麗的顏色。這些蛋糕是用頂級品質的原料加上獨特風味組合的餡料製作而成,但它們實際上卻是以其糖霜而聞名。
  雖然鏡面蛋糕已經存在一段時間,但它們最近大為流行的主因可以追溯到一位名叫奧爾加.諾斯科娃的俄羅斯糕點師。起初,她從製作法式馬卡龍開始,並很快進步到能做出使她在網路上爆紅的絕美蛋糕。諾斯科娃因為想要享用美麗又美味的食物而開始烘焙蛋糕,但烤出令人驚豔的蛋糕很快成為了她的全職工作。
  諾斯科娃在 Instagram 和 YouTube 上的名氣為她贏得數十萬名粉絲,她蛋糕的照片及影片也有數百萬的觀看次數。她能夠向客戶收取高得離譜的蛋糕價格,每公斤價值可高達八十美元。諾斯科娃的人氣增長到全世界都有人對她的才華有所需求,且她正將自己的糕點事業擴展至包括杜拜在內的新據點。她還在世界各地為下一代的糕點師授課。
