Kek Champion

In this new reality baking competition, 10 of Singapore’s home-bakers battle out in Kek Champion’s kitchen to be declared the winner of Kek Champion. Every week, our hosts, Huda Ali and Chef Bob, would give the contestants two challenges for them to showcase their strengths. The challenges will test not only their skills but how far they would go to get that title. As with every competition show, there will be an elimination every week as well as a baker of the week who will be given the red apron. When a Surprise Challenge is given, how would the bakers react to it? Would they perform to their best of their abilities or crumble under pressure? From baking croquembouche towers to Kek Lapis, who can prove that they are truly a Kek Champion?
