Dr.Oetker Vege-Gel Sachets substitue for Chocolate Mirror Glaze.


I would really appreciate it if somebody could give me the new amended recipe and instructions on how to make Helen Vass – Crème de la Crème - Chocolate Mirror Glaze by replacing the "Silver Leaf Gelatine" with Dr.Oetker Vege-Gel Sachets.

Currently she uses the following:
240g UTH whipping cream
50g Water
360g Caster sugar
14g Silver leaf gelatine
120g Cocoa powder

Thank you.


Hi Sky64

Vege gel is not a substitute for gelatine, it is an alternative. The preparation is different so the whole recipe would have be adapted. As mentioned previously, I have not made Helen’s mirror glaze and unable to give an answer at this time.

Helen has her own contact details and has her own Facebook page. You can contact her for advice on her recipe. I am sure she will be more than happy to help. Her input will give the best results to any changes made to her recipe. 🙂
