chocolate chip cookie cake

May 29, 2012 by Angie

This week’s 52 Weeks of Baking challenge is another technique: letters and/or stencils.  I have made some likeable frostings this year but I am still not all that pro-frosting.  I think the work/cleanup to enjoyment ratio is not sufficient to warrant making it again so I went with a powdered sugar stencil situation to decorate my chocolate chip cookie cake.

I used a recipe from The Sweetest Vegan for the cookie cake.  She is so adorable and funny, I love her.  You can see a video of her making this and a recipe at the link.

Cute Husband is a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur and is a big fan of the cake version too.  He gives this recipe two thumbs up.  I think it tastes great but my wonky oven caused a bit of a problem with the consistency.  I know for sure that my oven doesn’t heat evenly and I also suspect the temperature is off.  Next time I will bake it longer at a lower temperature because the top was perfect but the inside wasn’t set.  I refrigerated what we didn’t eat the first day and the cold leftovers right out of the fridge are awesome.

To fulfill the stencil challenge at hand, I used a star cookie cutter and tried to fill that in with powdered sugar.  I don’t own any kind of sifter so I had to do it with a small spoon.  It’s a disaster. My first cake wreck!  Oh well, at least it tastes good.
