This is for all the Chocolate Chip Cookie LOVERS!!!

Well, I think that just about covers everyone…

doesn’t it? Who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies?

Well if you don’t I wouldn’t TELL ANYONE, we will all think you are CRAZY!!!

This fun cookie cake is easy and fun…..and DE-LICIOUS!

I just loved the look on my son’s face when he caught the first look at this…

he loves chocolate chip cookies and asked me to make some for him this week…

and well TODAY just happens to be his birthday,

so yesterday I baked up a double batch of Toll House cookies and began assembly on this beauty.

Needless to say, he thinks it is just about the BEST BIRTHDAY CAKE…EVER!

To assemble the cake I started with 8 cookies in a circle and one in the center,

as I stacked and alternated with piping the icing in a ring on top of the circle of the cookie

and completely covering the center cookies it allowed me to press the cookies into each other

so they would stay in place and there would be icing falling in the spaces between the cookies.

After two rows I used 7 cookies.

You can certainly adjust this number of cookies depending on their sizes.

You don’t have to worry about the spaces that don’ t have icing, with this many cookie and icing,

everyone will get plenty of yummy goodness.

I baked all my cookies using a two-tablespoon scoop, they were about 3 inches each.

I think this icing worked out PERFECTLY, it was soft enough to drop between the cookies

but was firm enough to hold up all the weight of the cookies with no problem.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Creamy Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 drops white food coloring
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  1. Beat butter and shortening, add sugar, vanilla, coloring, and cream, and mix until smooth and creamy.
  2. Place in a piping bag with a round tip. I used a 2A tip, it allowed just the right amount of frosting to come out without it piling up too high.
  3. Place the cake in the fridge overnight so the cookies soften with the frosting to make it easier to cut.

I made this cake a day ahead 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies baked crisp, so they hold up to the frosting. They will soften up when refrigerated. 3/4 cup chocolate chips for the top I used Nestlé Toll House Cookie Recipe for the cookies


I really can’t think of any day where this cake wouldn’t be perfect for.

Here is what the cake looked like when I sliced it.

Next time I make one I would spread the icing evenly across the layers so there were no gaps and to keep the layers more even.

    1. I will be cutting and serving it on plate and will update with a photo once it’s cut 🙂 The cookies will soften with the icing on them and should be easy to cut.

    2. I just updated the post with photos of the inside of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake if you wanted to see it sliced.

  1. I think this is a fabulous idea! I looked at the thumbnail in my reader and it looked strange, but when I saw the full size photo, it’s genius for a cookie lover! This would be an adorable groom’s cake using his favorite cookie or macarons in an ombre effect! Oh my!

  2. I am glad i stumbled upon this i was thinking of making a cookie in the shape of a cake for my boyfriends birthday. But i have a question i want to make snicker doodles because they are his favorite. Do I still make the frosting as is? or should i add something to it like cinnamon or vanilla? other than that the “cake” looks really good

  3. Amazing… this is just amazing, I LOVE chocolate chip cookies way more than cake and will be making this next week for a family celebration!!!
