You guys. This cookie cake was to…die….for. It was reminiscent of a cookie cake from the Great American Cookie Company – but without the preservative aftertaste! Whenever I see a cookie cake I always think of the episode of Sex and the City where Miranda’s near-perfect [but not perfect for her] boyfriend gives her a gigantic chocolate chip cookie that says “I Love You.” She couldn’t say the words back to him and ate the entire cookie just to make the problem disappear.
I didn’t know what I write on this cookie cake or how to decorate it, so I resorted to a line from my favorite TV show, Parks and Recreation. Treat yo self! The show is back for its 5th season starting tonight, so be sure to watch. I can’t wait for Ron Swanson to return to my life.

*I decorated the cake with store-bought frosting. You could always make homemade buttercream if you’d rather use that.
