"Instead of using water, as instructed on the instant ramen packet, I use a stock. I love a chicken stock, you can use a vegetable stock, you can use beef stock," she told fans. 

"I feel like that's part of my success in this whole thing, it's like flavour layering, you know?"

And that's not all! Cameron also uses two flavour packets – in this case, ginger and lemongrass and garlic and pepper. She joked: "I'm crazy like that."
