Like in 2018, Malaysia has won the Asian Pastry Cup, held in Singapore on October 25 and 26. South Korea, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Chinese Taipei had five hours to prepare two frozen fruit entremets, twelve frozen lollipops, seven restaurant-style desserts as well as two 145 cm artistic pieces.
The jury, chaired by Otto Tay (member of the winning Malaysian team of the CMP 2019) and made up of great pastry chefs such as Marc Rivière (World Pastry Champion 2009 and member of the International Organizing Committee I.O.C.), awarded first place to the Malaysian team, made up of Charles Lim and Pui Teng, second place to South Korea and third place to Chinese Taipei. The three countries thus obtain a direct ticket to the grand final of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie, which will take place in January 2023 at Sirha Lyon.
The organizing committee also decided that Singapore, which came in fourth place, and the Philippines, which could not participate in this qualifier, travel to France to play in the final. For its part, Japan, runner-up in the 2021 World Cup, will also be present at Sirha.
Malaysia was also awarded the well-deserved special prize for the Best Taste, South Korea won the award for Best Display, and India has been honored with the Team Spirit Prize.
