– Hi my name is Asmara
and I’m five years old. And today I’m having two chefs compete to make my dream dish. (ice crackling and wind blowing) (grand music) – [Alix & Hannah] Hi Asmara!
– Hi. – How are you? – Good. – I’m Hannah. This is Alix. – Ice to meet you. (laughing) – We hear a little secret about you. (mumble) We heard that you might
be an ice princess. Do you know what an
ice princess would eat? – A sandwich. A snowball one.
– [Hannah] Is this for lunch? – [Alix] A snowball sandwich? Now that’s a good kind of sandwich. – [Asmara] This is a snowball. – I’m thinking that’s doable. Sweet usually is the way to go so. So what’s your favorite
kind of snowball flavor? – Vanilla. There can be yellow stars. – [Alix] Cute.
– [Hannah] Ooh. – So is there grass in this winter land? – Yeah. – Ooh, what’s that?
– And cucumbers. – [Alix] Cucumbers. – Okay. Ice and cucumber. I really don’t understand how this is going to come together, doesn’t really go together in my mind. – [Asmara] These are the
shines that make it shiny. – [Alix] Okay.
– Shiny, okay. Do you like fruit? What’s your favorite fruit?
– Ooh. – Orange. – Oranges.
– Oranges. Do you like pineapple? – Yeah. This is the sun, these are the stars, this is the bread and this is the snow, these are the cucumbers, these are the grass, and these are the yellow
lines that make it shine. – There’s a lot going on here but if there’s one thing I’ve learned in this competition, it’s to not leave anything out. – I think that we have everything we need to make something truly — – Amazing.
– Snowtastic. (both laugh) I can’t do it like you can!
– No. (beep) – This is an avalanche of a picture.
(beep) This is gonna be a — – Breeze! (laughs) Freeze!
(beep) – Let’s see who the winter is! Of this competition. (both laugh) Like winner? Let’s go! (playful music) So here’s my plan. I won last time based off of the simplicity of my dish. So I’m gonna keep it
simple again this time. For the sandwich, I’m doing toasted bread with butter and sugar
and two different flavors of little ice cream scoops inside. For the grass, I’m doing
a green buttercream. For the stars and the sun, I’m doing cut up pieces
of mango and pineapple. And for the shimmers, I’m just gonna do edible glitter. – All right, here’s my plan. For the snowball sandwich, I’m gonna make vanilla ice cream snowballs covered in blue coconut and a chocolate waffle base. For the stars and the sun, I’m going to make a very simple
open-faced cheese sandwich. And for the grass and the shiny stuff, I’m gonna use sweetened coconut and color it green and yellow. (upbeat music) Hannah, do you think if
I win this competition, you’ll still let me swim in your pool? – (laughs) I’ll think about it. Alix and I are very good friends. We joke that she’s my daughter, she’s my third child. – Hannah’s like my mom. I just don’t know how I’m
supposed to compete against her. – I’m goin’ to have to let go of my maternal instincts
and affection towards her, which I don’t think I’ll be able to do. Are you making waffles from scratch? – No. (both laugh) For the waffles, I’m
gonna be using pancake mix but I’m adding cocoa powder and chocolate chips to it to make it a chocolate waffle. She seems to like chocolate as well, so hopefully that works out in my favor. – So I have this star cookie cutter and I’m going to cut stars out of my — – Oh, so cute! Pineapple stars.
– pineapple and some mango but I don’t wanna get the core of the pineapple in here and this star cookie cutter is a little to big to avoid the core. So hopefully she doesn’t
bite into the hard part. I haven’t quite figured out what I’m going to do for the sun but as long as the stars
are turning out okay, I’m good. Oh my gosh, is this even gonna work? Oh no! Oh no. – I mean, it’s not horrible.
– It’s pretty bad. The mangoes are not working out. They look really weird
so I’m scrappin’ it. So we’re going full
pineapple for the stars. This mango’s gonna be my sun ’cause it’s not really working as a star. – Oh, it’s so cute! – So you can use this
for your cheese later. – Can I eat it?
(laughs) – No, I’ll, if I mess
one up, you can eat it. – I’m goin’ to be using
a fancy waffle maker to get the waffle shape. I genuinely don’t know how to use this. There’s like two, it spins. Okay. Here we go. I have to do two waffles. I feel like I’m gonna,
maybe, need more batter. How much do you put in even? (timer dings) (Alix gasps) Oh!
– Oh, is it done? Check the inside though.
– Wow, that’s so fast. (both laugh) – Do you know the amount of effort I put into my kids’ meals at home? This makes me feel guilty. My youngest can never find out that I have done this show because he is already a picky eater, and if he catches wind of this, he’s going to be demanding
this for every meal. – Okay, this one is definitely sticking to the top of this thing. Oh man, oh man. You know what, I can still use it though. It’ll be the bottom sandwich. – But how’s she gonna pick it up? – Girl, we’ll —
– Okay, okay. (Alix laughs) – So now that my waffles are cooked, I am going to move on
to assembling the stars. For the stars and sun, I am using simple white bread, spreading some mayonnaise on top, layering that with the
slice of cheddar cheese, and then cutting out the
stars and the sun shapes. So I know it’s a little weird to go with an ice cream sandwich, but I’m just gonna give
her what she wanted. – Oh, you’re putting mayonnaise on that? – No. I’m not gonna do it anymore.
(both laugh) – Mayonnaise next to ice cream just weirds me out a little bit but the more I think about it, the more a kid would probably be stoked because it’s kind of like, the best of everything. – You know what, she said mayonnaise — – Put the mayonnaise on!
– This is weird but I’m putting mayonnaise on. – She’s gonna like the mayonnaise. – There are two strategies
in this competition. Give the kid what they want, give ’em what you think they want. Today, I’m giving her what she wants. Wow, look at this little
cheese bread star! – Oh, that’s so cute.
– Right? – Now I’m gonna draw my snowman friend. He’s made of snow and he has three
snowballs that’s his body. He has stick hands and he is my friend. We’d play hide and seek. – Can I borrow a couple pieces of bread? – Only if you do the chicken dance. – Really? – Yeah.
– Okay. (cheerful music) (clapping) – Okay, you can have some bread. – Thank you. Oh my god, I cannot believe I did that. – Cooking alongside Hannah is so much fun. I mean, we just get to chat and hang out. – Let’s see how I can toast this bread. This is a really important step because if I over toast it, the bread is done for. There’s a lot at stake
here with this toast. I don’t think people realize, I haven’t calibrated this toaster. Well, if I under toast it, then I run the risk of tearing the bread when I spread the butter on. This bread is not durable. Have you seen bread shake like this? I’m toasting the bread, covering it with butter and sugar and a tiny bit of salt. Just to cut out the
sweetness a little bit. The butter sugar ratio is key here. – It’s kinda like snow, kinda. – Except it’s gonna disappear. What are you making the sun out of? – I don’t, I guess I’m just
gonna do the same cheese bread. We’re just gonna chop of
this star legs, I guess? – Oh my gosh, that’s so cute! – Thank you. It’s literally just cheese bread but… – I have something really cool. This is edible glitter. I don’t how much of this
you’re supposed to use or if it actually has any taste. Well, that worked great. (Alix laughing) – I don’t know if she even likes coconut, I really hope she does. But this will give me good grass texture. I’ve never colored coconut before so we’ll see how this goes. For the grass, I’m coloring
sweetened coconut green, and for the shining stuff, I am coloring it yellow. – Because I really haven’t made anything, I’ll make buttercream. My buttercream is like the most basic ever which is butter, powdered sugar, and milk and some food coloring. I hate using food coloring. I hate it. – My philosophy on food coloring is that, parents may not like it, but it works in this competition. (laughs) – I don’t like it. I don’t think it can be good for you. This tastes weird. Oh you know what it needs? It needs a little salt. Watch this, Alix. – Oh wow. – (gasps) No! It all went in my sleeve! (laughing) So once the frosting is ready, I’m going to put it in a piping bag with this really awesome tip that actually has a bunch
of individual holes in it, so that when the frosting
squeezes through, it kind of crinkles up like grass. – [Both] Ooh! – Wait, that’s so cute!
– That’s cute. The grass looked so cute! So stoked! – Now I’m gonna start with my snowballs. The last thing to make is the snowballs, so I’m gonna be scooping
vanilla ice cream, rolling that in the
blue-colored sweetened coconut. – Ew! Oh my god.
(Alix laughing) She used a big scoop and I’m gonna use this tiny scoop to try to make tiny snowballs. I’m putting my bread down, four little scoops of ice cream, two vanilla, two strawberry, and maybe I’ll throw some
green sprinkles in there to imitate the cucumber. ‘Cause you know, why not just load her up with some more sugar? We’re already here —
– [Alix] Why not? – [Hannah] Why not do a little more? – Puttin’ my grass down. Looks like grass to me. The shining coconut. I really hope she likes coconut cause — – [Hannah] Oh my god!
– I put it on everything. – There was no point in me putting green sprinkles
on these snowballs, it does not look good. (Alix chuckles) so I’m going very small and simple and Alix is full-blown party on a platter. There is so much color on it. It’s very bright and vivid and lively. The more I look at her dish, the more I hate mine. It looked better in my head. – It looks great! Mine looks crazy. She might be a little overwhelmed. I guess we should go see who the next ice queen of the competition is. – Pink versus blue. – Pink versus blue.
– Which one will win? (grand orchestra music) So my dish is very simple. It is exponentially simple. But I think I gave her everything she had on the drawing and it is food and it is on a plate. But does it look great? (exhales) I think it should taste good. – I’m really proud of my dish. I think it came together perfectly. It’s exactly what I had envisioned. The snowballs look like snowballs, the grass looks like grass. I’ve gotten all the elements
that she’s asked for. I know the flavor combination’s
get a little weird with the cheese and the ice cream, but I hope she really likes it. – Time for my ice cream feast! (wind blowing)
(bells ringing) It looks nothing like the picture. For the shine, I did the lines. The stars, mine was like the hard ones but they did the other ones. Like the easy ones. This is pineapple.
(needle scratches) I don’t really like pineapple. – She said she doesn’t like pineapple. (film rewinding) Do you like pineapple? – Yeah. (slow motion) Yeah. – I might be in trouble. – Now let’s taste this. Mango! I love mango. It’s my favorite thing in the world. – That made me feel a lot
better overall about the dish. If you have a kid’s
favorite food on there, that ups your chances of
winning by far, I’d say. – Oh, the grass! Okay, this is gonna be good. It’s like frosting. I like frosting. – She didn’t like that I
didn’t put lines on the plate, but she did like my grass, so I say they cancel each other out and we’re neutral. So it all comes down to
this sugar toast sandwich. – Oh, this is heavy. (exclaims) It’s yummy. It’s got ice cream inside. My favorite parts are the
mango and the vanilla! Whoa! Oh my gosh, this is awesome. – I can hear her exclaim “Wow”
and I know I’ve done my job. – Yeah, I kinda knew
that was gonna happen. – [Producer] Don’t try it right away. – Mm, I just want to! She did the lines, that’s good. And to be the grass, oh. What is that thing? – There’s a lot of coconut on this dish and I’m banking on the fact
that she likes coconut. – Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! It’s coconut. I love coconut! It tasted so delicious. Mm, cheese on bread. It’s slippery. Slip, slip, slip, slip. Oh man, oh man. This is crazy. A crazy day! Cold! It’s cold. – [Producer] Don’t get
a brain freeze, okay? – I did. Okay, just everything on
this plate is delicious. – That went shockingly well. She liked everything on the plate. She didn’t think it was weird that there was cheese and bread and ice cream sandwiches. She even loved the coconut! I am ecstatic. (playful music) – [Hannah] Hi!
– [Alix] Hi Asmara! – Hi! – How are you? – Good. – Ice to see you again! (Asmara and Alix chuckle) – So you tried two dishes today, right? It seemed like you liked ’em both a lot. – No. – No? Okay. (laughing) Well if you had to pick one, which one was your favorite? – The coconut one. (Alix gasps and exclaims) Chef Alix, because you won, you get the chef drawing. – Thank you so much! I scream, you scream, we all scream for the ice queen. – Because Alix beat me, she’s grounded until my
feelings are no longer hurt, so. You are officially crowned the ice queen. – [Alix] Wow! – I scream for ice queen. – Yay! (upbeat jazz music) (camera clicks)
