Zumbo’s Just Desserts Season 3 – Cast Details
Since it a competitive show where the amateur bakers compete to present their unique sweet creations, the cast comprises people from around Australia. The contestants who fail to impress chef Zumbo keep getting eliminated, after every elimination round.

Zumbo’s Just Desserts Season 3 – Storyline
The show tests the baking abilities of aspiring bakers where their expertise, versatility, and creativity are put to test. Every contestant competes to impress patisserie chef Adriano Zumbo, wherein they are required to bake cakes and desserts ranging from difficulty levels – easy to complex.
This show is reminiscent of many other baking shows but it is slightly different though. The two lowest-scoring competitors who fail to impress the judge are subject to compete in what is called a “Zumbo Test”. To avoid elimination, they must recreate one of Zumbo’s recipes as accurately as possible. Zumbo is known for the delicate and complicated nature of his desserts, so the contestants are forced to multitask and make choices about things in a short period.
The one who wins receives a cash prize of $100, 000 and gets an opportunity to have one of their creations in Zumbo’s stores.
