Chocolate and Cookie Dough Layer Cake with Cookie Dough Buttercream Frosting

6 Nov

Hi again!

I made cake!!

Chocolate and Cookie Dough Layer Cake with Cookie Dough Buttercream Frosting!!!

I didn’t take a lot of pictures of this cake because it was for a friend, but I decided that I really needed to share it.  It’s one of those cakes that you have to eat in moderation….it’s sweet and rich and ridiculously yummy!!  Everyone will want the recipe…..amazing!

First, make (2) 9 x 13 cakes.  I used chocolate because that is what the birthday boy wanted, but you can choose whatever flavor you would like.  Feel free to use a cake mix, or go ahead and make your own “from scratch” recipe….the choice is yours!!

Next is the “oh my” part of the recipe!  Pipe cookie dough onto one of the cake layers.  I found that the dough was too thick to spread, so I put it in a bag and squeezed lines of cookie dough onto the cake.

Then, top with the second layer.  Looks amazing already, huh?!?


You will be so glad you did!!

Cookie Dough Buttercream Frosting

This cookie dough can be used for so many different things!  My kids love when I roll it into balls, and dip the balls into chocolate.

Cookie Dough Truffles!!

There is an entire cookbook full of recipes made with cookie dough, it’s called the Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook by Lindsay Landis. (Imagine that!!)  I LOVE it!  If you have a thing for cookie dough, I’m thinking you should check it out!


Love, Lara
