Birthday Funfetti Cookie Cake

Remember this chocolate chip cookie cake that I made for the hubs for Valentine’s Day?

Well, that was such a hit with Ryan that he requested I make another one last weekend for his birthday. I wanted to mix it up to make it extra special for his birthday, and since I have had a Pillsbury Funfetti cake for my birthday every year since I was probably two, I wanted to attempt to incorporate that into this cookie cake.

I went straight to the source that I used for the last cookie cake, Life, Love & Sugar, and sure enough, she has a recipe for a funfetti cookie cake! I followed her directions step-by-step, with the exception that I baked the cookie for 30 minutes to make it a little more firm instead of soft.

We enjoyed this cookie cake when my parents came into town to celebrate Ryan’s birthday, and it was a hit!

This is what cake dreams are made of, people.

What is a birthday treat or dessert tradition in your house?

  5. My KitchenAid mixer is the best gift I've ever received! I got it from my mom at my bridal shower, which makes it even more special.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
