Yum! I loved those! all regards to Catherine Zhang. You are probably wondering who she is. Well here is your answer (she wrote this herself in her blog) :

I’m a 21 year old Australian born Chinese running towards a future filled with desserts and pastry. In 2019, myself, as well as 9 other dessert makers entered Zumbo’s dessert factory to battle it out for the “Zumbo’s Just Desserts” champion title. I was challenged and my skills were tested amongst peers of equal and greater talent. However, it was in this environment I grew and found greater certainty of my future in the area of pastry.

After emerging successful I’m heading straight in that direction, follow me in the next big stage of my life!

So, that was her explanation. Oh and you can watch “Zumbo’s Just Desserts” on Netflix.  So I will see you next post. Oh and look at the link to her blog. Byee!
