One of my neighbors turned 40 earlier this month and her husband planned a surprise party for her. I told him I would make the cake. I also made some of my chocolate chip cookies for those that didn't want cake. :)
How cute it is?
I baked 4 round cookies. Took about 30 minutes. I bought 4 foil pans from the dollar tree. I also got a cute little round nickel plate to display the cookie cake on.
I made the frosting:
-3 sticks unsalted butter (soft but cool)
-6 cups powdered sugar
-1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
-1 tsp vanilla (I used my homemade)
Each cookie layer got frosting. For the top I had baked up some baby cookies and two candles. I wanted it to be cute and simple.
When it was time to cut, I just sliced a piece from 1 layer that way we got more out of it. There was maybe 4 slices left by the time I left. haha Everyone raved about it. I had a slice and it was amazing. The frosting was perfect with the cookie. :)
