He’s no stranger leaving people lost for words when it comes to his extravagant dishes.

But on Tuesday night viewers had plenty to say about British celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal’s showstopper on MasterChef Australia.

Pulling out all the stops, Blumenthal revealed his ‘Counting Sheep’ dessert – two perfect meringues perched on top of a floating pillow. Casual.

Despite his best efforts to blow people away, many on social media likened the showstopper to “floating tampons”.





Rather than tampons, another likened the showstopper to a “floating sanitary pad”.


Nonetheless the floating dessert was impressive with many questioning how on earth Blumenthal did it.



But unfortunately, as one Twitter user noted, it wasn’t the magic of Hogwarts creating this sorcery it was magnets.

A negative effect was created by magnets in the base and the pillow, causing the floatation.

Somehow we don’t think Blumenthal will be able to shake off the “floating tampon” comments for a while.
