To launch their new cake venture, Red Hot World Buffet in Cardiff invited me and a few other food bloggers to a ‘Red Hot Cake Off’. If you have never been to a Red Hot World Buffet, check out our previous write ups here and here.
If you are celebrating a birthday or any other occasion which calls for a sumptuous and beautiful cake, Red Hot World Buffet now offers delicious cakes to end a meal or even to take away! Head Pastry Chef, Darshan Choudhari has created a wonderful range of cakes that will appeal to all cake lovers: Dark Truffle Cake, Carrot Cake, Strawberry Cheesecake, Florida Gateau, Caramel and Brownies Sensation, Black Forest Gateau, Pineapple Passion. The price for a cake ranges from £11.49 to £15.99.
To celebrate the new cakes, we were given a demo by Chef Choudari on how to make the perfect cheesecake, and it really was the most mouth-watering cheesecake!
After our demo, we were invited to create our own cake using the same fine ingredients that they use for their cakes. Of course, ours did not look as beautiful but they tasted great, as we had good quality ingredients to work with: fresh fruit, rich chocolate ganache, freshly whipped cream and light and moist sponges.
My cake tasted fab but looked a disaster! I definitely need more than a morning session to learn that art! I used their ingredients to create a chocolate berry cake using chocolate sponge, ganache, mousse, fresh berries, slivered almonds and a white chocolate shard.
Others were more successful decorators as you can see from the photo.
As a matter of fact, the well deserved winner of the ‘Red Hot World Buffet Cake Off’ was a proud young Charlie.
