Adriano Zumbo’s Raspberry V8 Cake

Zumbo V8

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.

Adriano Zumbo’s V8 Cake

by minibites

So there’s been an enormous Masterchef addiction in our office this year, especially for my boss – so we only found it fitting to spoil ourselves with the Adriano Zumbo’s V8 cake.

The V8 holds 8 vanilla wonders: Vanilla Crème Chantilly, Toasted Vanilla Brûlee, Vanilla Water Gel, Vanilla Ganache, Vanilla Macaron, Vanilla Dacquoise, Vanilla Chiffon Cake and Vanilla Almond Crunch, and throw in some brown sugar crunch crumble in there just to mix it up a little…

Definitely overindulgent, over the top and deadly sweet. There was no wonder why we all fell into a sugar coma after our little cube. Although there is only one dominant flavour, the different textures made the cake so overwhelming interesting. Without knowing what will come next, eat bite tastes different as everyone tried to pinpoint what was what.
