  • First, we're going to be making the classic chocolate chip cookie layer. You need to bake each layer separately, so make these in order.

    Ingredients:

    3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
    3/4 cup dark brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 cups all purpose flour
    2 tsp cornstarch
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Next...

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a circle of parchment paper into the bottom of a 9 inch cake pan and grease the sides. You could also use a 9 inch springform pan.
    2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
    3. Mix in egg and vanilla.
    4. Add flour, cornstarch and baking soda and mix until well combined.
    5. Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will be thick.
    6. Press the dough into an even layer in the bottom of the cake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Allow it to cool in the pan then place on cooling rack.

  • The next layer is the chocolate cookie layer!

    Ingredients:

    3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
    1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1/2 cup cocoa (I use Hershey's Special Dark)
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Next...

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a circle of parchment paper into the bottom of a 9 inch cake pan and grease the sides. You could also use a 9 inch springform pan.
    2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
    3. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
    4. Add flour, coca and baking soda and mix until well combined.
    5. Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will be thick.
    6. Press the dough into an even layer in the bottom of the cake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Allow it to cool in the pan then place on rack.

  • Now for the last cookie layer, a funfetti cake batter cookie!

    Ingredients:

    3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup flour
    15.25 oz box funfetti cake mix
    2-3 tsp sprinkles
    3/4 cup white chocolate chips
    3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Next...

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a circle of parchment paper into the bottom of a 9 inch cake pan and grease the sides. You could also use a 9 inch springform pan.
    2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
    3. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
    4. Add flour and cake mix and mix until well combined.
    5. Stir in sprinkles and chocolate chips. Dough will be thick.
    6. Press the dough into an even layer in the bottom of the cake pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Allow to cool in the pan and then place on rack.

  • And you're done with the cookie cake layers! Before assembling the cake, let's make the quick vanilla buttercream to go in the middle.

    Ingredients:

    3/4 cup salted butter
    3/4 cup shortening
    4 cups powdered sugar
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    2-3 tbsp water or milk
    Sprinkles (for on top, don't mix in)

    Next...

  • Directions:

    1. Beat the shortening and butter until smooth.
    2. Slowly add 3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
    3. Mix in the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp water.
    4. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add more water to get the right consistency.

    Now, the last step tells you how to assemble the cake, so check that out!

    Next...

  • To put the cake together:

    1. Use a large serrated knife to remove the edges of the middle and bottom cookie layers, if needed. Sometimes the centers of the cookies fall a bit and it can be good to cut off the edges, so that the layers are even.
    2. Place bottom cookie (Funfetti) on your cake plate.
    3. Top cookie with icing. I used my Ateco 844 icing tip to pipe a nice, thick layer.
    4. Top icing with next cookie (chocolate), then add another layer of icing.
    5. Add last layer of cookie (classic cookie), then finish off by piping icing around the edges and adding sprinkles.

    Next..

  • And you're done! But don't forget..

    DON'T FORGET TO BE AN ABSOLUTE DOLL AND LIKE THIS! Not only does that help others see the recipe so they can make it for themselves, but I really, really appreciate it.

    Lemme know how this recipe worked out if you made it! ♥
