To celebrate International Cheesecake Day on Friday, Japan’s Embassy in Israel and its American counterpart held a cheesecake bake-off judged by three children.

Kristin from the US Embassy in Jerusalem created a New York-style cheesecake, while Shion Kawai from Japan’s Embassy made a Japanese-style cheesecake.

The “professional team of judges” gave the chefs an hour and a half to bake and then tasted both cheesecakes before picking their favorite — the Japanese-style version, winning by a 2-1 margin.
