300 bakers got the chance to showcase their skills at the eighth edition of The Cake Festival. Creativity and passion were evident from every participant. Two bakers stood out; Hashnunish Sultan, last year’s winner and Tamimah ‘Binti’ Mohammed, who won this year’s edition, and was a first time participant.
Hashnunish studied culinary arts but trained herself on cake baking and decoration. She didn’t participate in this year’s competition but was on ground to demonstrate different baking techniques to participants. She advises those scared to start their journey pursuing their dreams to grab the opportunities without giving excuses and learn from every mistake. Her dream is to start an exclusive bakery.
This year’s winner, Binti’s cake won the hearts of the judges, audience and competitors. Just like Hashnunish, Binti is a self-taught baker who has harnessed her skills for the past 11 months. Her ingenuity has grown over time and her dream is to start a bakery and pursue her passion in the pastry world.
KAPA Oil Refineries, through their brand Prestige margarine provide an avenue for bakers to pursue their dreams. Hash and Binti will benefit in advancing their crafts beyond The Cake Festival and making a living out of it.
