From the look of the impressive dessert, the contestants will likely be tasked with creating Nigella’s beloved toasted marshmallow and rhubarb cake.

Nigella is heard describing the dish’s ‘Brûlée marshmallow icing’ and intricate ‘marshmallow meringue’ that required expert precision and a blow torch.

‘Oh my God!’ one contestant reacts, as others look over in shock and disbelief. 

MasterChef judge Melissa Leong told News.com.au on Sunday that Nigella’s pressure test would cover ‘two rounds’.

The stylish TV personality said the first round would consist of contestants identifying 18 flavours from a box of Nigella’s favourite biscuits.

The five lowest scoring contestants will then have 90 minutes to recreate one of Nigella’s favourite dishes based on her detailed description – which is believed to be her extraordinary cake.

According to the publication, the task will be made more difficult by the aspiring chefs being given no ingredient list, recipe and visual reference while baking.

This year’s Superstars Week will also welcome a host of other internationally renown chefs, including Yotam Ottolenghi, Massimo Bottura and Clare Smyth.

Last year Nigella and Heston Blumenthal were forced to miss out on their scheduled appearances due to coronavirus travel restrictions and border closures.

Gordon Ramsay, Curtis Stone and pregnant popstar Katy Perry were able to film separate segments before Australia shut its borders in early 2020.  

In 2019, Nigella’s pressure test for contestants was to recreate her infamous roast chicken dinner.
