Judges Nacho Aguirre and Katie Lee are joined by a rotating third judge, including panelist Carla Hall, to ultimately determine which competitor made the most stunning creation. The results include a giant double barrel toasted marshmallow cake made with Girl Scout S’mores®, a ten-layer Do-si-do®/Peanut Butter Sandwich red velvet globe cake complete with peanut butter buttercream, and Thin Mints® are transformed into a three-tiered blueberry mint glacier cake. Girl Scout® alums Hannigan, Lee, and Hall are joined by current Girl Scouts® each week. The series kicks off Monday, February 3rd, 2020 at 8pm.
“We are all obsessed with Girl Scout Cookies® – from Thin Mints® to Shortbread/Trefoils®, everyone has their favorite,” said Courtney White, President, Food Network. “Watching these talented artists transform the beloved cookies into mind-blowing masterpieces makes for a fun, fast-paced show for the whole family.”
“We’re excited to celebrate Girl Scout Cookie® season with Food Network!” said Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. “These beloved treats are part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—each purchase helps girls learn important business skills and have impactful leadership experiences. As Girl Scout Cookie® Championship shows, there are many exciting things girls do in Girl Scouts®, from the cookie program to space exploration to outdoor adventures to incredible travel opportunities. There’s something for every girl!”
“I’m thrilled to be hosting Girl Scout Cookie® Championship,” said Hannigan. “The creativity and expertise of these bakers is amazing and the cookies themselves bring back so many childhood memories – I can’t wait to share the show with my girls.”
