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®.
