The St. John’s Cookie Throwdown is “one part baking competition, one part bake sale,  all parts delicious. With prizes donated by local businesses, celebrity judges, and just a redonkulous amount of cookies.”

All funds raised will go to support the creation of the Stand-Up Challenge, a new creative challenge based on the RPM Challenge to write and perform a set of stand-up comedy in one month.

The Cookie throwdown will take place April 3rd, at Rocket Bakery — who are the kind sponsors of the event.

Register as a Baker …

Here is the link to register:

All you have to do is bake 26 cookies and bring them to the Rocket Room on the morning of April 3.

In exchange, you’ll be given a box you can fill with 8 cookies by other bakers! It’s like cookie bartering, with a chance to win some great prizes.

And The Cookie Categories Are …

If you choose, you can have your batch of cookies compete in a category. Two of your cookies will make their way to the judge’s table to compete.

1. Best Use of an Unexpected Ingredient
2. Best Decorated
3. Best Kid’s Entry
4. Best Professional Entry
5. Best Chocolate Chip
6. Best Vegan
7. Best Gluten Free
8. The People’s Choice!
9. Best Use of a Newfoundland Ingredient

And the Judges and Prizes Are …

Judges will be chefs and bloggers living and working in St. John’s, including representatives from the Reluctant Chef, Mallard Cottage, and Raymonds. Fancy Schmancy, so bring your A-game to the ovens, bakers.

Winners of each category will win prizes donated by local downtown businesses — including Oliver’s Restaurant, Portobello’s Restaurant, Belbin’s Grocery, the Newfoundland Craft Council, Afterwords Bookstore, Heritage Crafts, Newfoundland Chocolate Company, and Food For Thought.
