Mocha Cake with Coffee Mousse topped with a shiny Mirror Glaze- A wedding anniversary delight

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary and to celebrate the occasion I baked this mirror glaze mocha cake for the first time. I was looking for a chance to bake this amazingly scrumptious cake and so I got a reason.

This is the first time I am trying the mirror glaze effect and it came out perfect. I have followed my very own mocha cake recipe, the coffee mousse recipe and mirror glaze recipe I adapted from different blogs.
I choose the coffee flavor for our anniversary cake as we all love the flavor a lot. The glaze came out perfect and so I want to share the recipe with my lovely friends. The creamy white chocolate gives a mirror-like finish when poured over a smoothly frosted cake. The latest craze in this baking is this shiny mirror like a glaze and the glazing effect. I am very happy and excited to share this recipe with all of you. Hope you will try and let me know.
