Yes, it’s a little flamboyant and pink, but with an office full of cake enthusiasts and it’s the big man’s birthday, we couldn’t help but dive into a bit of an indulgence…
Keeping up to the challenge is hard, when the year before the beehive croquembouche was conquered by Dexter-esque stabbing and the year before that was the classic white V8 cake made famous by Masterchef.
In its initial appearance, the cake could be any pink and pretty looking cake, but after slicing, the sections reveal beautifully equal layers. Flavour layers of black sesame, raspberry, liquorice, lychee and plenty of rosewater – and works wonderfully textually with layers of gel, crunch, jelly and cream.
While the sugarcoma set, there was a nod in agreeance that this was definitely better than the classic.
