In VisionTV’s new series Bake and Make Up, a once inseparable twosome – childhood friends, past loves, long-lost family – are given the chance to reunite and rekindle their relationship through baking. By bringing two people together to create a delicious and personally meaningful dessert, they can find their way back to each other once again.

Kendria and Leslie were “built-in best friends” as children. For all the big life events, Leslie looked to her older sister Kendria to lead the way. But when their Mother passed, followed by Leslie’s husband, a rift began to grow. Leslie still shows her love through food and together, creating their childhood favourite Deep Dish Brownie Pizza, they try to find a way back to being besties.
