The Singapore team composed of Chef Desmond Lee Yam Hock and Chef Pang Yun Kian has just won this year’s Asian Pastry Cup. Thanks to their talent and hard work, the team impressed the jury with some incredible showpieces and an extremely creative “Chocolate Exotic” cake.
Malaysia and India reached the podium in second and third place respectively and both go to the Finale. And Indonesia is also qualified, as Singapore, who belongs to the “top 7 group” and is automatically selected for the Grand Finale, gives a qualifying position to the country coming in 4th place.
These four countries will be joined by Thailand, who obtained a “wild card”, awarded by the founder of the contest: Gabriel Paillasson.
