I know that sometime in the last 5 years I tried to do this … I think it turned out okay but not good enough for me to want to try it again I guess. Every now and again though I remember the kids growing up who had these cakes at their birthday party and I always thought they were delicious!
So, knowing I needed to bake another cake and knowing I wanted it to be different from the other cakes I have planned for the next two weeks. I decided that a chocolate chip cookie cake was the way to go!
I picked up those disposable baking pans at Target last week to make giving out cakes a bit easier. I made sure to butter the sides and bottoms in hope that this doesn’t stick too much!
I used this recipe from Nestle. Here. Since I was using a different sized pan I cooked it for 15 minutes at 375° and then 10 minutes at 350°.
Obviously I let it cool for a considerable amount of time. I even let it cool a bit in the oven while it was turned off. I wanted to make sure the center was heated properly — I should get a thermometer for that but I did do a toothpick test … that seemed okay lol
I decided on green because I wanted to use orange and this was the next best color option, lol. I made a full batch of frosting but barely used half. I’m saving the rest for some Halloween cupcakes!!

By the way, Grandpa just turned 79!! Next year will be the be Eight “O” =) !!
These next three weeks are very busy for me personally but that also means a lot of occasions to bake so hopefully I’ll have time to post too!
Thank you for reading! =)
