The below 4 categories - flavor, creativity, complexity, and aesthetics - will be judged on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being best. The weighted sum of each category will determine the final score. Flavor is worth 40% wile all other categories are worth 20%.
  • Flavor - 40%. Each judge will receive one sample of dessert.  A 10  would be "the best dessert flavor I've ever eaten. I want more!" and 1 would be "inedible."
  • Creativity -20%. Is the dessert a novel idea the judges have never seen before?  A 10 would be "something completely unique," and a 1 would be "been there, done that."
  • Complexity - 20%. How difficult was the dish to execute? Are all components homemade? Were any special techniques used at home? A 10 would be "extremely difficult to execute," and a 1 would be "anyone can do this."
  • Aesthetics - 20% Does the dessert look appetizing? Does the appearance make someone eager to taste it? A 10  would be "Wow," and a 1  would be "rather not eat it based on appearance."
