Holiday Cookie Decorating Contests at Prosecco Cafe and Saquella Cafe: Open to Kids of All Ages

Got a kid who's a total Picasso in the pantry? A real Kahlo in the kitchen? Or simply a child who has enough self control to resist chowing down on a cookie that's placed in front of them? This weekend, your budding pastry chef can show off their talents in a cookie decorating contest, complete with cash prizes.

Sister restaurants Saquella Cafe and Prosecco Cafe this weekend will host cookie decorating contests open to kids of all ages. The friendly battle is 3 to 5 p.m. today (Saturday) at Prosecco Cafe in Palm Beach Gardens and 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday at Saquella Cafe in Boca Raton.

There's no cost to enter and the cafes will supply the cookies, as well as all of the icing, sprinkles, and other edible materials needed to create a masterpiece. There will be a variety of cookie shapes available, like Christmas trees, dreidels, gingerbread men, and other holiday designs.

Child contestants are asked to bring at least one new, unwrapped toy. These will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County and the Palm Beach Children's Hospital at St. Mary's Medical Center. A panel of pre-selected judges will choose the winners, who are eligible for cash prizes of $75, $50, and $25 (not bad for something most kids love to do anyhow).
