Cookie-Inspired Cake #1: Magnolia Cookie Cake

My Magnolia Cookie Cake is inspired by my copycat Magnolia Cookie recipe that I (and I know so many of you) love! I’m guessing these cake layers will taste unlike any other you’ve ever had. They are hardy and chewy like a cookie, but it’s cake! I used my go-to peanut butter frosting for this cake to finish it off and it’s soo good! 

Cookie-Inspired Cake #2: Samoa Girl Scout Cookie Cake

Like many of you, my favorite Girl Scout Cookie is the Samoa. I had been wanting to make a cake inspired by this cookie for a while, so I was elated when I finally nailed it! My Samoa Girl Scout Cookie Cake is unique because you stack it in acetate paper and then refrigerate/freeze it to help it stay in place. When ready to eat, you remove the acetate paper and you have this beautiful naked cake look. And the taste is even more amazing! I know you’ll love this one.

Cookie-Inspired Cake #3: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

This Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is not only inspired by the classic cookie, but by my son Westin too. Back when I first made this cake, he and I would watch the Kids Baking Championship every week on Food Network together. On one of the weeks, the challenge was to make a cookie cake. And then the wheels in my head started turning. I had a lot of fun inventing the recipe for this one (which you can read more about in the original post) and decorating it with Westin. This one definitely tastes like a moist and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie!

Cookie-Inspired Cake #4: Cookies and Cream Cake

This Cookies and Cream Cake is truly one of the best cakes ever! First of all, I use my go-to chocolate cake recipe. I worked on that cake recipe for years and now I would dare say it is the perfect chocolate cake. And it pairs so well with the sweet vanilla buttercream that coats the cake. And there are elements of the Oreo cookie all throughout the cake! I recommend crushing up the Oreos in a blender or food processor to keep your buttercream super smooth when you spread it on your cake. I know you will love this one!

Cookie-Inspired Cake #5: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I had a close friend tell me to recreate the cookie cupcake from the Sprinkles store in Las Vegas. She said it was the best thing she ever put in her mouth, so of course, I was up for the challenge! That’s where my Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake comes from. Take note that I use dark chocolate for a reason in this recipe! You lose the chocolate flavor a little bit when baking this one, so using the dark makes the chocolate stand out enough when finished. This cake is filled with a chocolate cookie crust, yellow chocolate chip cake layers, brown sugar frosting, and chocolate chip cookie crumbs. You will love every bite!
