its gonna be time to bid farewell to some of my cellies soon so to send them off, estelle decided to accept william’s challenge to make the v8 cake, christened by one of the contestants as “8 layers of hell”. 0_0.. anyways, the cake is a creation of adriano zumbo whose shop takes 3 days to make 70 of such cakes. contestants on masterchef were given 4 hours to make one, so u can imagine the ensuing hell unleashed in the kitchen. we’re taking no chances here, and alloting 3 days to make one cake. here’s to hoping for a eight-layered success. =)
a step by step guide is offered at the masterchef website for daring amateurs, whilst i found another blog post detailing the baking process. this really looks fun, but to be honest, the realization of just how much sugar, cream and glucose goes into the different layers makes me feel kinda wary of the cake.
