Russian confectioner Olga makes sweets that look like marbled mirrors. “It all began with my love for macarons,” she said. “Later, I began to devote much time to studying confectionery arts. I wanted to learn how to make European mousse cakes. My mirror glaze is the result of my experience.”
After this A&D 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 learned the way people have got information about me. First of all [from] A&D., I am grateful you referred to my Instagram and appreciated my work. I’m so flattered by such attention,” she wrote on her Instagram. Another success story is in the works!
