This Wednesday, November 23, Le Meilleur Pâtissier takes us to Spain with a week dedicated to this country’s pastries. As every week, Mercotte prepares a recipe to make for the candidates. Internet users, in addition to finding it unattainable, do not find the cake to their liking and have made it clear on Twitter.
After the week dedicated to Hollywood, here is the theme of the best pastry chef this Wednesday, November 23: Spain. Manon, Benjamin, Cléo, Adelina and Nils are the last candidates still in the running and the level is getting higher and higher. From now on, every detail counts and a mistake can have serious consequences for them. During the first event of this episode, the contestants must revisit the famous churros. A particularly appetizing test, which will be passed by Manon and Benjamin.
On the other hand, the second test turns out to be not as attractive. As every week, candidates must make a pastry according to a recipe written by Mercotte. This test is known to be technical, difficult to pass and with sometimes disastrous results. November 23rd is no exception. The goal was to make a cake made of nougat, white chocolate and a large piece of nougatine to represent the Sagrada Familia.

An unappetizing cake
If the recipe is followed to perfection, the cake should resemble the famous Spanish basilica with its stained glass windows and towers. However, seeing the result of Mercottes, netizens were not convinced, on the contrary. Many are disgusted at the sight of this dessert.
The visual of the cake isn’t the only thing that shocked internet users. The difficulty level of the test was also questioned. In fact, part of the recipe was written in Spanish and another part required some math skills. For some, the simple fact of making the Sagrada Familia in nougatine seemed excessive. Finally, as for the first test, Benjamin and Manon’s cakes stood out. At the end of the show, Cléo was eliminated and had to say goodbye to her comrades who had been by her side for 12 weeks.
