Tips & Tricks to Making the Perfect Cookie Cake
This mint chocolate chip cookie cake recipe is SUPER easy to follow, but here are a few tips and tricks to get the perfect minty dessert every time!
- One way to make sure all your ooey-gooey cookie layers stay relatively the same size is to use about 3/4 cup worth of dough for each cookie. As well as drawing yourself a 6in round guide to spread your cookie into. This helps a TON!
- Like every cake stacking, make sure your layers are NICE & COOL before you begin stacking. Cookie layers don’t hold quite as well as a cake layer when transferring on top of each other. So make sure to take it slow and use a spatula for extra support!
- Let your icing cool for about 30 minutes to an hour before spreading on. You want your icing to be able to hold the weight of your cookie. So if you stick it in the fridge for a bit it will help hold its shape and keep that mint chocolate chip cookie cake stacked tall and pretty!
