We’re just one week away from Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s annual Dessert First event on Friday, Nov. 20 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park. This event features some of the Tampa Bay area’s best chefs in a heated culinary competition for the “Golden Whisk” and “Silver Whisk” awards. Each chef will use their creative flair to create one-of-a-kind desserts using Girl Scout Cookie favorites such as Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs. As the name of the event implies, we are breaking the rules and all desserts will be served before dinner! Best of all this fun-filled evening is all to support leadership development of girls in our community.
Today we’re giving you a sneak peek at this year’s dessert menu and glimpse at winning desserts from the years past. The competition is going to be fierce this year. Our chefs aren’t holding anything back as they compete for our two coveted awards. If these treats taste half as good as their names, your sweet tooth is going to satisfied from now until cookie season!
