Where to watch Port Coquitlam IT worker compete in national cake contest

A Port Coquitlam custom cake maker is vying for a $50,000 prize in a national cake-baking contest.
Saudat (Sabby) Atta prepares to show off her creation to judges in Cross Country Cake Off.

A Port Coquitlam IT manager — who bakes custom cakes — is competing in a national competition, and viewers can watch the entire contest on TV.

Saudat (Sabby) Atta is among eight cake makers from western Canada who were brought together earlier this year at the Stanley Park Pavilion to present their homemade creations to the esteemed judges.

The top two bakers representing each region (east, west, and mid-Canada) move on to compete in the finale for a chance to win the $50,000 grand prize.

Atta is featured in the first episode of Cross Country Cake Off with co-hosts and judges Mary Berg and Andrew Han, who will assess the cakes based on how they look and taste, as well as the story behind the cake and the person who made it.

The four-part series will see 24 bakers from across Canada competing for the top prize.

Atta isn't the first Port Coquitlam baker to participate in a national contest; last year, Cassandra Curtis of Cassandra Cake Co. won $10,000 in a Food Network Christmas baking show.

There is no word yet as to how well Atta did in the Cross Country Cake Off competition; viewers will have to watch the premier at 6 p.m. Pacific time tomorrow (Dec. 15) to find out.

Still, Atta is excited, noting on social media that the show is coming soon on CTV, through its channel, website and mobile app.

She explained she'll be taking custom cake orders for interested residents after Jan. 6, 2023.
