If I were the contestant, I will feel slightly nervous as the judges being introduce are celebrity judges. Chef Rose Weiss, Chef Sherson Lian, and Chef Dato Fazley Yaakob, the winner of MasterChef Selebrity Malaysia in 2012.
Being a judge certainly is never easy. The creation that most participants that had created out are unique by its own. Follow by a small little session that judge explain about their criteria on what the spot on to make the cupcake emerge as a winner.
