Kate wins Zumbo’s Just Desserts


“No Nonsense Mum” Kate has won the series title Zumbo’s Just Desserts.

The 37 year old defeated 28 year old insurance broker Ali for the championship and a $100,000 prize.

Both finalists cooked in two rounds, comprising a Zumbo Test with an imposing Zumbo recreation and Sweet Sensations free choice task. Each challenge stretched to four hours

Former contestants returned for the grand final, along with finalist families.

Kate’s 33 out of 40 was enough for her to take out the win -by just a single point over Ali.

“I’ve just won Zumbo’s Just Desserts and that is beyond anything that I could ever possibly imagine. I am actually having trouble thinking of words to describe,” she said.

The series launched to 1.24m viewers for Seven, but more recently has been hovering around 700,000 viewers.

  1. For me, it has felt like a Kate Dessert Show given the amount of airtime she’s got throughout the season compared to the others. I don’t think I’d religiously watch this if it does return next year. It does feel a bit ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ and I am too old to follow this concept 🙂
