Cookie Monster Cake

7 Aug

C is for cookie… and also for cake! Last weekend I made a wonderfully fun cookie monster cake for a birthday. It was my first time making it and im so pleased with how it came out!

COOKIE!

COOKIE!

It was a chocolate sponge cake, with vanilla and cookie buttercream in the centre and iced with cookie monster blue vanilla buttercream! I made the eyes and mouth out of chocolate and the cookies out of cookies! What do you think?

I hope the birthday girl enjoyed her cake as it travelled from Finchley to Clapham as a surprise! Get in touch if you’d like this cake for your celebration.

I leave you with the inspiration for this cake…

C is for cookie…. and cookie is for ME!

The BEST chocolate chip cookies

22 May

The best chocolate cookies… a very daring expression but I believe it’s definitely justified! I have made a lot of cookies in my time, from soft and gooey to crunchy and chewy (ha!) But these… these…. just WOW!

Take a bite...

Take a bite…

Hard and slightly crunchy on the outside to chewy and soft in the middle, littered with chocolate chunks and a sprinkling of fleur de sel. Well, the cookie monster would definitely take a bite out of these!

I got the recipe from my favourite cookbook of the moment, Lily Vanilli, and adapted it slightly but adding more chocolate and using muscovado sugar to make sure it had that chewy middle!

I still have about a third of the cookie dough sitting in my freezer, just waiting to be made into fresh cookies! That’s the great thing about this recipe, you don’t need to wait for the dough to chill, and the whole process of making and baking the cookies takes under an hour from start to finish!

I will be making these for my upcoming bake sale on 26th June, let me know if you want any more info!

One more shot, I couldn't resist!
