Cookie Dough Heart Cake <3

Cookie Dough Heart Cake <3

If you want something to love, this cake is where it's at! It's so cute, and fairly easy if you have the right tools. Recipe for one triple layer 6"cake. 


Cake -

3 cups flour

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt (fine grounds)

3/4 cup melted vegan margarine

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups milk (I used Silk almond milk)


Frosting + Filling

3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup margarine 

1-3 Tbsp milk (I used Silk almond milk) 

food colors (pink and red)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tub Choc chip Cookie dough for filling! (duh, we do make cookie dough)

Toppings -

Cherries and anything else you may want to add! You also need piping bags and piping tips (large star and small circle)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. 

2. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt. 

3. Add melted margarine, vanilla, and mix in almond milk. 

4. Pour into greased and floured 6" pans (I used 3). The flour will help prevent sticking.

5. Bake in pre-heated oven for about 30-40 min or until toothpick comes out clean. 

6. Remove from oven when finished baking and loosen sides with butter knife. Then tilt pan over to remove cakes onto cooling rack. Let FULLY cool. 

7. While the cakes cool, mix the frosting by combing all ingredients until completely smooth. Start slow and increase speed. 

8. Make 2 cups pink frosting and reserve some white for decorating. Dye a little bit red if you'd like to add that color too! Set aside or put in fridge. 

9. Assemble the cakes adding a layer of cookie dough in between (that's two layers of cookie dough). Your choice how thick. 

10. Carve the cake into a heart if you're making a heart cake. If not, leave it a circle! Or carve whatever you want! 

11. Frost with pink frosting, and pipe the decor like in the pics and/or video posted on instagram. You can use the piping bags and tips I suggested you gather before starting. You can always make your own design too! Add cherries at the end for the popper. They really make the cake for me personally. 

12. Store it in the fridge!!! This is important. Who stores cake at room temp? Just don't.
