Has anyone seen anything on FLVNG or FN on cookies? They have great shows on cakes, and they are big hits! Just wondering if anyone has come across any highlighting cookie decorating. Just curious.

They had one challenge last year that was all about cookies, though they didn't spotlight professionals. It had amatuer bakers, and they divided the challenge into three (??) categories of cookies. The last category was more along the lines of decorated cookies, which was the most interesting, I thought. The contestants were judged on how the cookies looked and tasted, and there wasn't a whole lot of time allowed to truly create.

I use my TiVo to find programs with cake, cupcake, cooke, and sugar in the title and description. One of the best surprises was when I watched an old episode of Sugar Rush, which featured Susan Caliendo, owner of Rolling Pin Productions[url]. She shows viewers how she decorates cookies and even reveals how to make the textured icing on her teddy bear cookies - something I was dying to know! (She stipples stiff royal icing).

Was this the same episode that had the lady who used crushed candies in her cookies? She then dusted the tops of the cookie with the same crushed candies. The cookies were packaged in some really cute tins, and had yummy sounding flavors. (Butterscotch, peppermint, and key lime are the only three I remember).

Kim, I did a dish pass (similar to tivo) for sugar rush, hopefully it will repeat. Maybe someone who knows someone who knows someone at one of those networks will put a bug in someone's ear icon_wink.gif
By the way, Kim, you held up okay in the hurricane(s)? I had family go north for a while, but damage wasn't as bad as they feared.
