Shokugeki no Souma Season 3 Episode 1: Momo Akanegakubo’s Cake
Well, I’m back, it’s been like years since I did a last post. Let’s see how this goes.
Side note, yet important note: My heart goes out to all the victims in Las Vegas. It’s crazy and a real tragedy. I have a friend who was in Mandalay Bay when it happened and she heard all the gunshots. I seriously have no idea what drives a person to desire to take another’s life…I encourage you to donate in any way you can whether it be financially or finding a way to make a blood donation. Thank you.
We’re back for another season and I’m super HYPE! I have some free time now and have mostly recovered from a hernia surgery so I can cook and bake things again!
This episode did a quick glance at 4th seat’s cake. Momo Akanegakubo is part of the Elite Ten and the best patissiere in all of the Academy. Damn I wish I had her skills.
Disclaimer: I started the process before I watched the OVA that reveals the inside of the cake and some of the flavors. I just used what I had on hand at home. Also the inside is not pretty, I have warned you.
I also made two versions, One that was smaller and one that I tried to make larger and with more height. I ONLY had those two and I dropped the bigger one so I tried to re-glaze it but it got all messed up so I took a picture of the only decent side :P
version 1: smaller and the caramel was wack so I had to redo it.
version 2: a little more height. but yeah I couldn’t get the color to match the anime (nor a maple leaf garnish, maybe it just fell off a tree who knows?) but tis’ still a pretty color no? I mean I guess it’s close to the anime?
The DISASTER inside, oh well. at least I tried…it’s supposed to be strawberry mousse, rosemary crumble, yuzu curd and brown butter cake.
Thank you for your support and staying followed to me despite me not posting at all! I will most likely be working on random episodes as I see fit and plausible.
The next flurry of pictures is the process. so you can stop here really if you’re not interested. I do have a couple more pictures of the finished dessert at the end of it with a little extra treat on the plate. Feel free to read more!
