Red Hot World BuffetTo 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.

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!


Making a 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.

Great Taste, Shame About The Look.

Others were more successful decorators as you can see from the photo.

  1. Some of the best tasting cakes I’ve ever made looked rather terrifying. I make things that taste great but look like they need a structural engineer to shore it up. Your cake looks like it had nothing to be ashamed of.
    (I’m not really in a position to get to Cardiff to pick up a cake (I don’t think it would survive the 9 hour flight home), but on the off chance I win one, and it’s okay, you can let @RealityMinus3 have it in my place.)

  2. Mmmm, cake. They all look good and if they include chocolate it doesn’t matter what they look like. Well done!
