CANBERRA cake maker, Ali King, is set to star in the new cooking series “Zumbo’s Just Desserts”, premiering 7.30pm Monday August 22 on PRIME7.

Celebrated patissier Adriano Zumbo will put Ali and eleven of the country’s most passionate dessert makers to the test in a series of delectable challenges until the ultimate dessert king or queen is crowned.

Born and raised in Canberra, Ali runs a small cake business in her spare time called “La Petite Miette”. Largely self-taught, Ali produces the calibre of desserts that would make her idol, French master patissier Christophe Michalak, proud. Her dream is to study in Paris and hone her craft. “I love being able to come up with an idea in my head and make it something edible,” she says.

Ali may appear sweet on the outside but there’s a fire burning inside. “When it comes to desserts I get competitive. There’s two Ali’s in the kitchen; one is cool, calm and collected, the other can get frustrated, which can lead to tears,” she added.

The winner of “Zumbo’s Just Desserts” will not only take home $100,000 in prize money but they’ll also have one of their creations in Zumbo’s stores around Australia.
