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?

    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.
