Cookie Cake Decorating

Cookie cake decorating is faster than baking and frosting a whole cake but you can have just as much fun decorating it. It is not only cheaper than buying one, it is rather simple as you make cookie dough and pat it into a pizza pan or large circle. Bake and allow to cool. Then decorate as you'd like. Whatever the celebration it is a fun twist.

Cookie Cake Recipe

You can use any cookie dough recipe and pat into a circle or onto a pizza pan. We used the following cake mix cookie recipe for ours.

Cake Mix Cookie

1 pkg. Yellow or white cake mix
1/2 Cup butter, softened or oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 Cup chocolate or white chips
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Add mix, butter, vanilla and eggs in mixing bowl. Beat together several minutes until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Pat dough onto a greased and floured pizza pan. If you don't have a pizza pan form your dough into a circle. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool.

Decorating Cookie Cakes

Once your cookie has cooled, start with creating a border to your cookie. A star border, shell border or zigzag border (pictured here) all work well.

Next add whatever wording you'd like.

Some tips for Cookie Cakes:
Don't remove the cookie cake out of the pan before decorating. You decorate and serve it in the pan you bake it in. So you can use disposable foil pizza pans for giving away or displaying if you'd rather not use your own pizza pan.
