My daughter is turning 3 soon, and she is soooooooo into Cookie Monster. So of course that's what we are doing for her birthday, but I don't want to do a blue cookie monster "head" cake. I want to make a round cake that looks like a chocolate chip cookie, and then put a little cookie monster on top of it.
I want the cake to taste like a chocolate chip cookie. What are your thoughts on how to do that? I did a google search and didn't really find anything, but I'm sure I can do this. I'll probably start with box cake mix, so no scratch recipes please. And of course, it will have chocolate chips. But to get the cake to taste like cookie, would I put vanilla extract and brown sugar into a white cake mix? Has anyone ever done this?
