Mirror Marble Cakes By Russian Confectioner Are Just Too Perfect

Russian confectioner Olga makes sweets that look like marbled mirrors. “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.”

After this Bored Panda piece, Olga’s followers on Instagram grew from 15K to 350K+. “I am shocked! What can I reply?… My phone can’t deal with all the messages!… I have learnt the way people have got the information about me. First of all…[from] BoredPanda.com…I am grateful you referred to my Instagram and appreciated my works. I’m so flattered by such attention,” she wrote on her Instagram Another success story in the works!

For someone who is OCD like me, this is perfect. The only thing wrong with it is when they put berrys on it. It makes it look broken up.
