Let’s Review the August Baking Challenge
August 2018 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer Cake
This month was filled with towering cookies! Using the base cookie cake recipe, there were dozens of stacked cookie cakes with all sorts of frosting and assorted toppings. Peanut butter frosting and sprinkles, chocolate frosting and M&Ms, cream cheese frosting and chocolate chips, dark chocolate frosting and toffee chips, plus pink frosting, mint chip frosting, and even a cookie cake shaped like a heart. I applaud your creativity, bakers! This was such a fun challenge and I enjoyed seeing your excitement about a wonderfully simple recipe.
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Debbie:
“I made this cake yesterday, using three 9-inch round pans and the results were AMAZING! Per my son’s request, I used your Favorite Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe, which was perfect. The cake looked beautiful, and cut very easily. LOVE this recipe so much that I decided to take the leap and enter the Baking Challenge for the first time! Thank you for sharing such a delicious (and easy) recipe!”
Giveaway winner for August is Claire and she has been notified. 🙂
