Plot Synopsis

HOLIDAY COOKIE BUILDS is a half-hour reality series that follows Salt Lake City-based friends and baking experts Brenda Nibley and Alisha Nuttall, as they transform their clients' wildest requests into edible masterpieces for the holidays. In this series, Alisha and Brenda dream up incredible cookie designs, and with the help of their Gingerbread Dream Team of amazing bakers and even a carpenter, create decadent treats in time for their clients' events. Other edible creations this season include a five-foot-tall nutcracker, a life-sized turkey, a replica of Salt Lake City's famous clock tower, and a motorized basketball-themed Santa Claus cookie complete with fruit-flavored basketball cake pops. In the first two episodes -- premiering on Friday, November 9, 2018 at 10pm/7pm and 10:30pm/7:30pm ET/PT -- Alisha and Brenda are commissioned by a local figure skating team to make a giant edible skating rink with fondant figurines for a surprise party for their beloved coach. The cake artists figure out how to make the skaters move on the ice, while also including mint chocolate thumbprint cookies for all to enjoy. Later, a nonprofit organization requests a unique way to get kids excited about seasonal fruits and veggies for an upcoming cooking class. Brenda and Alisha must create an incredible life-size turkey and cornucopia with winter produce all made from rice cereal. Other episodes include Alisha and Brenda creating a five-foot-long replica of their local Main Street decked out as a winter wonderland, featuring 14 gingerbread buildings in early 20th century Americana style, along with layered peppermint bark treats for all. And when Brenda and Alisha are tasked with building a replica of a 150-year-old log cabin for a holiday fundraiser, the cookie team goes to great lengths to create edible art and tiny fondant furniture that will delight all.
On Friday, December 14, 2018 at 11pm ET/8pm PT, Cooking Channel premiered the season finale of HOLIDAY COOKIES BUILDS. In the season ender, "Countdown to Cookie," Brenda Nibley's hairstylist is throwing a customer appreciation party and wants to ring in the New Year with a bang in cookie form, so Brenda and Alisha Nuttall use a drone to help them design an incredible shortbread replica of the famous City County Clock Tower and its Romanesque architecture. Then, they create a replica of an English cottage-style home as the centerpiece for a holiday brunch.
