A quirky cookie tale leads to Christmas challenge

"Quirky Tales," a series of an animated shorts inspired by stories written by Forum Communications Co., features a spin on recent local news.

We are part of The Trust Project.

.Julie Domaille is well known around in Rochester, Minn., for her incredible expertise in decorating cookies. Whatever the occasion or the reason, what she does goes way beyond what most can do. The cookie is her canvas, her medium frostings of all sorts.

In fact, when the Rochester baker recently said she was a finalist on Food Network's " Christmas Cookie Challenge ," the news came as no surprise. In years past, thousands of bakers have applied to be a part of this event. To be considered, hopefuls must have an Instagram account.

Domaille has had an account for some time, and her work was noticed by Food Network "scouts" looking for the best bakers.

Her selection inspired the animated short video below.
