Temple University’s own Baker Dave will be competing in this year’s Christmas Cookie Challenge tonight on the food network for $10,000 cash prize!

Baker Dave, real name Dave Okapal, is the pastry chef at Temple University and is a crowd favorite amongst the students.

In the competition happening tonight, Monday, November 19th at 10 P.M. on the Food Network, the local baker will be creating a life size cookie of a Christmas stocking.

About 9 years ago, Dave made his television debut on the Food Network taking home silver in the Food Network Challenge: Extreme Wedding Cakes. Baker Dave is looking to take home the gold medal this time around.

Throughout his time as a baker, Dave has created masterpieces that gave him the reputation he has today!
