Metallic Mirror Shine Cupcakes

Let your creativity run free with these rich and indulgent mirror shine cupcakes. Our Belgian Chocolate Ganache self levels when it is poured to create a beautiful mirrored effect. It’s then time to get creative with Rainbow Dust Metallic Paints and release your inner artist!

Top Tips:

  • Be careful not to let the Ganache set, or the metallic paint feathering won’t work as well.
  • There are over 20 colours of metallic paint in the range, so plenty to choose from- to see the range click here!

Step 2

Remove the pot from the microwave and stir the Ganache with a spoon.

Step 3

Carefully pour the Ganache onto the first cupcake so it covers the top- it will self level so you don't need to touch it!

Take the metallic paint colour of your choice and pour a small amount on top of the Ganache.

Step 5

Use a cocktail stick to feather the metallic paint on top of the cupcake.
