I saw this stacked cookie cake a while ago and knew this was the cake for my cookie loving Cousin. He has been known to eat cookies as fast as I can make them and ate about 30 in his last sitting. As I didn’t think it was a birthday cake without the cake Iadded a single tier to act as a sort of pedestal for the stack of cookies. Naturally I made this in a chocolate chip sponge. I used mini chocolate chips in the whole thing which allowed the cookies to be nice and thin and used this recipe. I used vanilla frosting to cover the cake and in-between the cookie layers. To get the cookies roughly the same size I put the cookie dough in the fridge to chill a bit and then used an ice cream scoop. I then flattened them between baking paper.
I really like the minimal look of this cake and I just used one white candle on top. The best thing about this cake is the slice that you get. It’s epic. So huge it only just about fit on our plates and I definitely shared mine. To get the cookies to cut like a cake I put the whole cake in the fridge for a few hours. This makes the cookies softer and lets you cut into it. I loved making this cake and I think there are enough cookies here to keep my cousin quiet for a bit. Happy Birthday Fabian!
