The daughter of Khashoggi is actually the one who convinced her to participate in the competition, she was also the one who pushed her and supported her throughout the entire competition. (Talk about female empowerment!)

“She has pushed me to improve and convinced me to be a part of this.”

The number of women who took part is impressive, with more than 120 women submitting their bakery creations, but only 10 finalist were chosen for Sunday’s showdown.

Khashoggi said that she acquired her baking skills from randomly choosing recipes, studying and cooking them.

Her daughter, Heba Bakri, expressed her happiness and pride for her mother’s victory,

 “I am so proud, she is a great person. Congratulations, mom. You deserve the best,” she added.

The competition finale was hosted by Abdulrahman Baaghil, co-creator of Jeddah Attractions. Judging were Basma El-Khereiji, chef of the Social Kitchen, and Raneen Joudah, a home baker, along with of course Mariam Haddad.

“I believe that it is an act of giving back to society by getting involved with small bakers, especially people who are just starting their careers,” said judge El-Khereiji.

Khashoggi is now getting the opportunity of creating her very own business, with the help if the startup Bakery M, and as promised, she will be getting design services from Loud, her own shelf space at Crate AND a SR1,500 voucher from Chef & Chef plus a variety of products.
