The Secret to the Perfect Cookie Cake
Cookie cakes are the best of both worlds: all the soft and chewy goodness of a cookie combined with the sinfully delicious icing of a cake. Added bonus - they’re also a great dessert to bake & decorate with the kids! Below are a few helpful tips for making the best cookie cakes with the fam.
Step 1: The Heavy Lifting
Get ready to bake! If, like us, you have a list of favourite cookie flavours so long it's impossible to narrow down, then we say don't. We've never met a kid who doesn't like a good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie, so keep it simple and pick your favourite chocolate chip recipe. Or make life even easier (and cleaner!) and pick up some of our Chocolate Chunk Ready-to-Bake Cookie Dough. It comes in pre-scooped dough balls, so all you have to do is pull a few out (about 5 for an 8" round pan), put them in your pan, and let them come to room temperature. Then just pat them down uniformly in the pan, bake for 20 min. in a 300° oven and you're skipping ahead to Step 3!
Step 2: Get Into Shape
The only thing we're exercising here is your imagination and the only thing limiting your imagination is the shape of your baking pan! Our go-tos are a classic round or heart shaped, but a quick google shows there's a pan shape for all your kids' desires (Hello Kitty cake pan anyone?). For your first cookie cake adventures, we suggest going with the classic round as it makes the perfect canvas for your little ones to decorate.
Step 3: The Fine Toning
Now for the best part - those fine frosting details that finish it all off! Picking a frosting for your giant cookie cake is important; it’s both the medium for your kids' creative talent and the part that adds that extra deliciousness. For flavour, think about what goes best with your chocolate chip cookie. Do you want chocolate, vanilla, maple, lemon? There are so many flavours to choose from and picking the right one is essential to making your cake taste & look good! We stick with the classic American style buttercream in vanilla and chocolate.
Time to add the colour. Pro tip: when choosing your colours, don’t worry about playing it safe! We’ve paired sky blue with red, sunny yellow with green, and we’ve learned that hot pink and turquoise look great together!! Choose unexpected colour combinations to make it really unique and fun.
