BM# 51 — Baking Marathon: Day 17

Bake of the Day: Celebration Cakes — Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I can’t believe it is the third week of our month long mega baking marathon, after making breads, breakfast dishes, the next two weeks (or week and a half) are going to be focused on desserts — cakes, cookies and so on.

I have been planning for this marathon for almost 6 months now. So I’ve been saving all the special baked recipes for this week. First up, is the cookie cake I made for my son’s birthday. It is a giant chocolate chip cookie that is decorated like a birthday cake.

My son’s birthday was on a weekday last year and I had planned to make a birthday cake for the party over the weekend. So on his actual birthday, I decided to keep it simple and made this cookie cake instead of an actual cake. That decoration was supposed to be a dinosaur because my son is a big dinosaur fan 🙂

This cookie cake is quite easy to put together and it was fun to decorate this big cookie. I had some buttercream frosting that I made for another cake, so used that to frost this cookie cake.

All in all, I had fun making this cake and my son enjoyed cutting it on his birthday. I halved the original recipe and made a 8″ cookie cake that we ended up eating the entire thing in one sitting.

Recipe adapted from here.
