I made this heart shaped chocolate chip cookie cake and some heart shaped mini cookie cakes for my family and me to enjoy for Valentine's Day.
Above is a picture of the mini cookie cakes before I put the border on the edge.
A cute alternative, and not quite as Valentine-y looking.
To make these cookie cakes I just followed the directions for the cookie cake recipe on the back of a package of chocolate chips. I baked the large cookie cake in a heart shaped spring-form brownie pan, and I baked the mini cookie cake in some heart shaped silicone cupcake molds.
After the cookie cakes were baked and completely cooled I flipped them over so I could use the smooth flat surfaces to decorate on. I used white buttercream icing to decorate them. For the large cookie cake I first put the ruffle on the outer edge of the cookie cake using a star tip. I used a large heart cookie cutter to make a shallow indentation in the middle of the cookie cake. Then I used a round tip to pipe my lattice lines. Next I made the inner ruffle on the heart indentation. After that I made my loop ruffles off the inner ruffle and on the sides of the cookie cake off of the outer ruffle. If I was doing this over again I would've done the loop ruffles first and then the border ruffles so it would look a little cleaner. The border ruffles would've covered the ends of my loops if I'd done it that way, but I was making it up as I went along so that's the way it went. :)
For the mini cookie cakes I used a round tip to make the lattice pattern, the dots, the cornelli lace pattern, the circles, and the lace pattern. Then I used the star tip to make the ruffles on the edges of them.
My family liked the Valentine's Day treat, and we all enjoyed eating them. Yummy! :)
