Lisa He, Winner Of Food Network’s Christmas Cookie Challenge, Pop-Ups

By DAVID on December 21, 2018

Her name is Lisa He, and she just won a pretty big prize. She was on Food Network’s Christmas Cookie Challenge which aired earlier this month. You might have seen it. She’s got pop-ups happening this weekend around Sacramento.

Well, she won that challenge, and rightfully so. Her cookies look absolutely amazing! Lisa lives here in Sacramento, specifically in Rancho Cordova. She gave a nice shout-out on the show as well, which is always good. The best thing about Lisa and her cookies though – she doesn’t run a bakery or restaurant somewhere. Her day job is for a software startup company in the medical industry. Her cookies come out of her home kitchen – she makes these as a side job. Awesome! She may have to turn to a full-size bakery soon though, she’s had a huge spike in orders since the show aired.

After getting @deltasprinkles surprise box this month, I saw these cute pastel sprinkles and decided that I MUST create a set for my pop up that matched these sprinkles! So working backwards, I used this beautiful mix of pinks, blues, silvers. I snuck the green in ;). I will have sets of these for sale at our pop ups this saturday with @thesweetestmix ! Be sure to get there on time to get the best pickings! We’ll have our final pop ups of the year this Saturday at 2 locations — stock may vary from last week! 9AM-1 PM @camelliacoffeeroasters and 2:30 to 4:3PM @station38coffee — please come see us. We have a set amount of cookies per location and will be there until sold out. …. cutter shops are tagged!! . #borderlandsbakery #sacramento #sugarcookies #baking #decoratedcookies #wiltoncakes #wilton #buzzfeedfood #foodgawker #cookiedecorating #cookiedecorator #cookieart #dessert #partyplanning #desserttable #bakeyourworldhappy #royalicing #pastelchristmas #christmas #christmastree #snowglobecookies #mittens #sacproud #christmascookies #holidaycookies #christmasbaking #festiveaf #snowman #foodnetwork

Lisa will have a couple pop-up shops in town this Saturday though. One of them will be at Camelia Coffee Roasters. They’re on R Street, and Lisa will be there from 9am to 1pm. Her next one will be from 2:30pm to 4:30pm at Station 38 Coffee on J St. If you want some award-winning cookies, now’s your chance. The award, by the way, was a $10,000 cash prize, which Lisa says she’s giving to her parents after some things happened to them this year. Here’s a lot more information on the story.
