3rd Annual Kids Christmas Cookie Bake Off 2022

It's Bake Off time! Many things are the same from previous years but a few things are different. Read on for all the details...

Date: Sunday, December 18, 2022

Time: 1pm-4pm

Ages: 5-9 & 10-14

Location: Trussville Public Library, The Cahaba Meeting Room, 201 Parkway Dr, Trussville, AL 35173

Judges: Click here

Fee to enter: None

Event Day: On the day of the event, participants can arrive anytime between the hours of 1PM to 4PM. There are no set time slots. Participants will be greeted at the door to the Cahaba Meeting Room by one of our staff members and have their picture taken with their cookies. (If you do not wish to have your child's picture taken, please let us know.)

Participants will then approach the judges table and present their cookies by saying, for example, “Hello, my name is Molly Thompson and I made Peanut Butter Reindeer Cookies.” (We know verbal presentation is not possible for everyone. A parent/sibling can present on the participant’s behalf, if needed).

The judges will either taste cookies then in front of the participant (depending on time and other factors) or say something like, “Thank you, we can’t wait to try them!” Participants will then exit the room. If time allows, parents can take additional pictures, if desired. Judges will officially begin taste-testing and judging at 4PM. We will contact winners via email and post on social media sometime the next day.

Categories & Prizes: There are four cookie categories and each category will have a winner for each age group (5-9 and 10-14).

  • Best Tasting Cookie

  • Most Festive Cookie

  • Most Unique Cookie

  • Best All-Around Cookie (a cookie which encompasses all three of the above)

Each category winner will receive a $50 Itty Bitty Bakers gift card to be used on any class, camp, or shop merchandise. The Best All-Around winners will also receive the Wooden Spoon Award Trophy.
