If the sushi can be as big as a donut, it is time to watch Donut Showdown. New on DIVA (seen on SkyCable Ch37), Donut Showdown will premiere its Season 2 Tuesdays 7pm and to show Season 1 Marathon on March30-April 1 (10:15am-12:40pm). When you think it's just another pastry making show on TV, be amazed because the showdown highlights use of a SECRET INGREDIENT. SkyCable and DIVA gave us bloggers an unforgettable experience making our very own - SUSHI DONUT. All participants were given only 5 minutes to assemble their own sushi donut, garnish and incorporate their own mystery SECRET INGREDIENT.
I was one of the unfortunate to get the judges' hearts but I was truly happy with my own sushi donut. With my secret ingredient- powdered sugar and all available salty and savory toppings and fillings, it was difficult to work fast to beat the time. I chose spicy tuna cream, salmon strips, black sesame seeds, shredded cabbage, orange caviar, tuna strips and fish flakes to top my very own sushi donut and drizzled Japanese Mayo after putting it on a Nori strip.
When everyone else left their creations and my blogger friend Byx and Kate were busy with their own sushi donut, I've finally had my moment to indulge and devour my tasty creation. I can't believe that the sweet sugar had created a spike to the flavor. After the second bite, I was too happy and I've felt complete.
