But first, please do not watch this if you're feeling hungry. All I could do after watching 45 minutes of cakes and pastries was thinking of that fluffy strawberry cake in the first segment. Oh, and that white chocolate dessert that won Round 2. I'm not a fan of white chocolate, but the contestant grated some lemon peel into it to bring down the sweetness of white chocolate, so I would like to try how it taste like if given a chance. Here is the photo.
Again, you might want to see if it's worth 45 minutes of your time before watching this. So here is the summary:
6 contestants are to make triangle slices of strawberry cake out of round sponge cakes. At the start of the competition, you see them rushing to get a sponge cake and hurrying back to their tables to start work. Each have to slice the sponge cake into half, apply whip cream, cut strawberries, put it in the middle of the cake, apply more cream, place the other halved spongecake on the top. Apply cream all over, cut it evenly into 8 pieces followed by more decorations. After the cake is done, they need to place these slices neatly on a long table.
This is the interesting part. The goal is to fill up the long table with as many "sell-able" cake slices as possible. The judge will examine each cake slice. Cake slices which are messy looking and badly sliced are considered "not sell able", therefore they will not be counted. Speed is not the main criteria in this competition segment.
One of the chef interviewed revealed that his shop does not sell such triangle cake slices. At one point, you also see the female host shouting to a chef, as he missed out a strawberry on the top of the cake.
4 contestants have to use chocolate as the main ingredient to come up with an original chocolate cake design. 1 of the contestant used pumpkin in his cake. 3 contestants used dark/milk chocolate in their cake, except for 1 who used white chocolate.
A group comprising 30 women who love dessert will be the judges of this segment. They will vote for their favourite cake.
2 contestants have to create an original christmas cake. Cake size must be 30cm wide and 40cm tall.
I was amazed by the techniques and their decoration skills, and I hope you all will enjoy this clip! Let me know!
Note: There will be a 30 seconds commercial before the clip starts. After the commercial ends and you find that the clip loads very slowly, you may want to let the clip run for 1-2 seconds before pausing it. Let the whole clip load before you play it :)
