Food Network features Blythewood woman

BLYTHEWOOD – You may be familiar with her dessert trailer at Soda City every Saturday in front of the Marriott Hotel in downtown Columbia or at a private event. Or you might have caught her Monday night on TV.

Selena Dennis

Blythewood resident Selena Dennis, owner of Embellished Dough bakery in Columbia, appeared with her husband and cookie-baking partner, Antavis, on Monday night’s Food Network Christmas Cookie Challenge competition.

The couple competed with three other cookie-making couples in two baking contests during the one-hour show.

After the first round of competition, The Dennis team was still in the hunt for the golden Christmas ornament and the $10,000 prize.  After the second round in which they made a cookie snowball-throwing scene featuring a cookie version of their iconic travel trailer that serves as a vendor vehicle at parties, receptions and – on Saturdays – at Soda City.

While the couple didn’t win, they turned out some cleverly decorated sugar cookies that the show’s co-hosts, Eddie Jackson and Ree Drummond, declared “delicious!” Drummond is the designer of Pioneer Woman casual dinner and bake ware.
