‘MasterChef’ participant Dorian takes the cake with her heart-warming tribute to mom who battled cancer
Dorian won over everybody's hearts by choosing a beautiful pink cake as it reminded her of her mother’s battle with breast cancer. Fans can't stop gushing over her champagne cake which was baked to perfection.
On the July 31 episode of ‘MasterChef', the chefs learned that baking a cake was no “cake-walk”. It’s “sweets week” on MasterChef, and the participants began the week by having to replicate a cake from the array presented to them in the episode aptly titled “Let them Eat Cake”. There were various cakes ranging from easy-to-bake cakes like pineapple upside-down cake, carrot cake to more difficult ones like gateau opera cake and champagne cake. Participant Dorian, who received a lot of flak earlier for the way she treated another contestant Subha, has redeemed herself in this episode.
When it was time for this feisty participant to pick her cake, she chose champagne cake. The reason behind her choice moved many to tears. She chose this beautiful pink cake because it reminded her of her mother’s battle with breast cancer. Though she lost her mother to cancer, she certainly won the challenge and secured immunity. The cake she baked was the epitome of perfection, she gave it her all and it showed. The judges appreciated it and the audience could only imagine how amazing the cake must have tasted.
Fans really appreciated Dorian’s sweet gesture. A fan wrote, “Dorian, Your momma was in that kitchen tonight. She spoke to you through that cake just like you put your momma into that cake. Well earned!!!#MasterChef”. Another fan commented, “Finally Dorian!! #MasterChef 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 your mom is proud girl. Proud! PERIOD!” Several fans admired that Dorian used the platform to create awareness about cancer. A fan wrote, “Great cake. Pink champagne cake. #BreastCancerAwareness @MASTERCHEFonFOX #MasterChef.” “#MasterChef Good Job Dorian. Ur 🎂 was Amazing and a great tribute to your mother #FuckCancer”.
Dorian has not only won immunity from elimination by winning the challenge but also got a prize of $5000 to buy kitchen appliances. A fan shared, “Yes Dorian gets immunity & 5K of top-of-the-line appliances! Amazing - you did your Mom proud! ❤️ #MasterChef”. Many felt that Dorian deserved this win, not just because of the emotional value associated with the cake, but also because she has been consistently performing well. A fan tweeted, “Dorian got immunity!!! Finally indeed! Top 10, then on to top 5, then to Number 1!🤞🏿 She's so humble, such a fantastic cook, and she got what she deserved tonight! She definitely took the cake tonight. 😉😉 Yaay! #Masterchef”.
