“Hi, my name is Catherine Zhang!”

I’m a 21 year old Australian born Chinese running towards a future filled with desserts and pastry. I hope this space can provide you with the recipes, tips and ideas to bring you the happiness desserts bring me!


Zumbo’s Just Desserts Season 2

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!

What’s the plan now?

After finishing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Food and Nutrition Science at the University of Sydney I am free to explore my future, and all I want to do is make desserts!

I am now running this blog, YouTube channel, small online shop and now my first ever e-book!
