Girl Scout Cookie Championship – Galactic Transformations
Food Network’s Girl Scout Cookie Championship
Episode 1 – Out of this World Cake Pops & Cake
Girl Scout Cookie® Championship Episode 1 is Out of This World!
Food Network’s Girl Scout Cookie® Championship starts out with a bang! Five bakers use Girl Scout Cookies® to create outer space inspired cookie pops. Then they’ll head to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J., and sell their Girl Scout Cookie® cake pops to a hungry crowd of cookie-lovers. The crowd will then vote and the three bakers with the most votes will move on to create ‘out-of-this-world’ cakes inspired by the solar system.
The three bakers will then use Thin Mints®, Tagalongs®, and Do-si-dos® to create spectacular cakes based on their favorite planet. Judges Nacho Aguirre, Paulette Goto, and Katie Lee will decide which baker reached for the stars and earned a dream outdoor adventure vacation and a year’s supply of Girl Scout Cookies®.
Round One – Girl Scout Cookie® Cake Pops
Bakers are given 90 minutes to create 2 dozen space themed cookie pops. Here’s what they came up with.
- Galaxy Lemon-Ups® Cookie Pop

- Samoas® Astrogirl Cookie Pop
Round Two – Girl Scout Cookie® Cakes

- Thin Mints® Saturn Cake with Mint Cream Cheese Frosting
