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 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
You can use any cookie dough recipe and pat into a circle or
onto a pizza pan. We used the following cake mix recipe for ours.
Cake Mix Cookie
1 pkg. Yellow or white cake mix
1/2 Cup butter, softened or oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
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.
Once your cookie has cooled, start with creating a border around the
edges. A star border, shell border or zigzag border (pictured here)
all work well. Learn how to do these decorating
Next add whatever wording you'd like.
Outline your letters with black frosting to make your wording stand
Add whatever details you'd like to brighten your cake.
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.
