  • Bagley is the owner of the Busy B Bakehouse in Carthage, Texas.
  • The local cookie artist competed against three other bakers to win $10,000.

Madison Bagley has to be the biggest fan of the Food Network's show "Christmas Cookie Challenge". According to KLTV,  she started her Busy B Bakehouse in Carthage, Texas after being inspired by an episode of the show.

After her cookies dominated East Texas, she was asked by the Food Network to apply to be a contestant in the delicious competition. She flew to California to compete on the TV show to see who was the best 'cookier' after being selected to be on the program.

On Thursday, December 14, 2023, she competed against 3 other hopefuls to see who could race against the clock and make an amazing 3D cookie build. This "cookie content creator" had the best design and won the competition and $10K.

When you come from a small town it can be hard to realize that you can do anything you put your mind to. Now with social media, it doesn't matter where you live. Anyone can influence others and make a huge impression.

This was an amazing full-circle moment for Bagley, and she is not stopping here. She will continue to make amazing content and share her love of making beautiful edible art.

You can guarantee that the cookie classes she teaches will be much fuller after her win. She is back to teaching at the Marshall Mercantile on December 18th at 6 PM.
