- A Pinay chef was declared as the winner in the international cake design competition
- She shared her heartwarming and inspiring story on how she achieved such distinction
- The Pinay chef recounted how she was able to overcome challenges, including having to sculpt clay, "putik," while others have the Play Doh
Chef Jade Saducas did not just conquer her own challenges, but she was able to conquer the world.
KAMI learned that Jade was given the distinction as the first Filipina cake designer world champion, and she was able to bag the top spot in the recently concluded international cake designing competition held in UAE.
Jade shared how she came from the province where even a colouring book was scarce.
As per Filipino Times post, Jade said, "We lived in the province and we didn’t even have a colouring book! We didn’t have that option like I was colouring at a colored book."
She started sculpting things at a very young age with clay as the first material that she used.
"It’s not like the other sosyal kids like they have this clay doh, me I had this real clay that I was sculpting. Putik talaga. While I was doing that, I discovered that I can sculpt in cakes," recounted the award-winning chef.
At first, she had a corporate job, a stint in photography and a lot more, but then, her dream to become a chef remained strong.
When the opportunity arose, she didn't think twice and took the job at UAE.
Finally, when her boss asked her to carry the flag of UAE in the international competition, she readily said yes and she was able to bring home the grandest prize.
