Red Velvet Cookie Cake

This “cake” was created for my daughter’s birthday. Her idea was to have a cookie cake and she wanted the flavour to be red velvet with cream cheese filling. This was definitely a fun baking experiment and she loved it! A very sweet “cake” for a special girl! You may want to slice this thinner than a traditional birthday cake due to the sweetness.

Cookie Layers

Cream together:

  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

Then add in and mix well:

  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equal to 3 eggs)
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Sift together dry ingredients and add to batter:

  • 3 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder + 2 tbsp
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Mix well and then add:

  • 3 tbsp milk
  • red food colouring, I use Wilton Vibrant colours and it only takes 4- 5 drops.

Once mixed, add in:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Separate the batter into thirds. Spread each third onto a parchment-lined, 9″ round cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 20-25  minutes. Cool before removing from pans.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 pkg softened cream cheese (250g)
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 cups icing sugar

Beat together all of the ingredients until fluffy. Decorate the cake layers.
