Funfetti Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

It’s mah birrrthday!!!!!!

YAY!

Yes, I am one of those people who love, looove their birthday.  Like, I live for it.  And treat it like a national holiday.  And religiously take the day off every year just so I can fully bask in the all-about-me b-day glow.

Basically, I’m the ultimate birthday girrrl.  And because today is the most special of days, a supremely special treat must be served.

A special little somethin’ like THIS.

The most magnificent of birthday creations ever.

When your nickname is Cakes you might as well live up to your name and bake up a sweet little treat for your sweet little day.  So I decided to be all wildly adorable and do just that, except that this cake is sooo much more than a cake.  It’s essentially part cookie, part cake, and 100% shove-this-in-my-mouth-now, chocolate-all-over-my-face, peeps-be-staring, it’s-my-birthday-I-do-what-I-want!, totally delicious.

Normal descriptions, I know.

At first I was just going to make myself a giant chocolate chip cookie, but that didn’t seem all that creative.  Then I was going to make myself an old-fashioned cake, but I figured posting a Duncan Hines recipe on here wouldn’t win me much respect.  So eventually I decided to skip the boxed stuff, break out my dreaded baking skills, and see what sort of catastrophe ensued.

What happened next?  I could barely believe it myself.

If you spend even just a little bit of time on here you’ll notice that I’m 1- Insane, and 2- Not so fond of baking.  The world of sugar and flour just really ain’t my thang, so I don’t make an effort to do all that much of it.  I guess I’m just more of a tweak it and tune it kinda gal, the type of chick who likes to adjust her food as she goes and not be limited to a rigid recipe.  So when I decided to bake myself a birthday treat and made the ridiculous move to just wing it, my hopes weren’t very high.  But sometimes being a child of chaos pays off, and this baby right here is one of them.

I knew you guys were gonna totally flip for this, so I’ve been dyyyying to get it posted.  I mean, do you see those sprinkles?  And the miniature size?  And that candle?!  Crazy adorbs, I know.

Since I’ve got this wedding situ happening in a few months I figured it was best not to bake myself a whole cake, so I found this mini springform pan that gave me the exact birthday treat dimensions I was aiming for.  When it comes to my hybrid creation, the best way to explain it is this has all the taste of a chocolate chip cookie, but the light fluffy texture of a cake.  It’s moist and airy but still has a lingering cookie density, if that makes any sense, and it’s sweet without being too sweet, which means you could easily inhale this in one sitting.  Not that I did that or anything…. just sayin’.

Anyway, the important thing is that birthdays RULE.  So have a slice on me, will ya?

And make a wish, too ;)
