How the CSK Champions made the ultimate birthday cake for Yolanda Gampp
Even with the kitchen torch, the winning team managed to do more than just impress viewers. They were successful because they are fans of the Gampp channel and know what she likes about a cake. “I’ve been Yolanda for a long time,” said Natalie Collins-Fish. Their winning cake included a layer of vanilla confetti cake with raspberry buttercream, lemon blueberry cake coated in vanilla Italian meringue buttercream and a lower layer of devil’s cake with a Foster banana filling and a diplomat caramel cream.
After following Gampp for so long, the team were able to tailor the flavors and design to be aesthetically pleasing to the decorator and the judge. “We picked the different flavors and then wanted to make sure we included her favorite, but also the blast cake that more suited her personality,” Collins-Fish said. “There’s a little bit of everything to make it more personal and not just ‘Oh, here’s a really nice cake’,” she added. To top it off, Collins-Fish told Mashed, “We wanted her to have a candle to blow out.” And that birthday candle with the pink frosting and explosion of confetti was just what Gampp needed to feel like celebrating. Of course, winning the entire contest and a prize of $ 100,000 certainly gave Flores and Collins-Fish something to celebrate as well.
