On June 28th it was my boyfriend’s champagne birthday and instead of a boring normal cake I wanted to go BIG. I’ve been following different Instagram accounts of bakeries that make giant cookies. I was debating on ordering one when I decided to make one myself!  Not only was he surprised but he couldn’t believe that I made it! The cookie was soft and delicious but sturdy enough to hold all the decorations.

Here is the recipe I followed for the cookie cake:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

*The recipe calls for walnuts but I skipped that

Direction:

  1. In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well.
  2. Gradually add flour, salt, and baking soda, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Spread in greased 14 inch round pizza pan. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20-25 minutes. Cool cookie in pan on a cooling rack. Decorate as desired.

*I used a 10 inch round pizza pan to make it thicker. I found that the cookie would’ve been really thin in anything bigger.

I began with the icing which I chose half Nutella, half peanut butter.

I decided to use KitKat, M&M, Caramel Rolls and Orero Cookies to decorate the cake. I began working on my rows.
