sugar cookie between cake layers - Page 2

post #16 of 206
I made a cake for my husband a few years back with a cookie layer. I did a cake version of his favorite candy bar, "Hershey's take five". Chocolate cake covered in chocolate ganache with a layer of peanut butter filling, caramel, and a cookie layer. It came out great. The cookie will soften, but mine didn't become soggy. I just laid the cookie right between the layers, didn't use bc.

louie750.. Ok you can not describe that cake and not share the recipe ! Please !

Wow, I'd never thought of placing a cookie btw cake layers! It's seems like the cookie would dry the cake out if you didn't put a layer of bc on each side of it. If you place a piece of bread into a sealed container of cookies, the cookies draw all the moisture out of the bread. I'd like to hear from some others that have tried the cookie layer.
Has anyone tried a brownie layer btw cake layers? I just discovered a wonderful scratch fudge brownie recipe (to die for!).

Wow... this sounds delish.... I will no soubt be making this for my moms birthday on Tuesday. Thanks for sharing the idea! Do you think chocolate cake with a chocolate chip and pecan cookie taste good? Thanks again!

lecrn.. I posted that same question on the last page, It sure seems like it should dry the cake out ?
Maybe thats what the bc does is make a barrier?
I would love to hear if anyome has noticed a drier cake from adding the cookie ?

ok, this may sound like a dumb question.......but what about when you torte a cake?? I torte all of my cakes.....would I put two cookies in there or three?? Or just the one? I imagine (especially after seeing that gorgeous slice of cake) that having the cookie in there will heighten the cake quite a bit...so do you just NOT torte when you're adding a cookie or what?? I really wanna try this!

What about layer of cake with bc on top and under it and then either torte or add a second cake layer with a different filling, fruit,pb, mousse what ever fits ?

The cookie DOES soften, but it is not soggy.
I used SMBC in that pic- I just like the taste better, but powdered sugar BC works as well.
You DO have to put a fairly significant layer of icing on top and bottom because it will (as I learned from a fellow CC'er last week) dry out your cake.
I think that's all icon_smile.gif
Oh, and thanks for the compliments. raquel1 is the one who started me on this phenomenon, and I just cant thank her enough. People flip for this "filling"

Can you use the Bettercreme recipe for the filling on this cake?

chefjulieatkins... Thanks much!

I made a chocolate cake with a peanut butter cookie and it was fabulous. The cookie (from a bag mix) softened just enough.
post #27 of 206
Oh, yes! I ALWAYS use the Betty Crocker cookie mix. I think my homemade cookies are just too soft and Im not sure they'd hold up well.

Sorry to butt in icon_redface.gif but the more I visit this forum the more I'm amazed icon_surprised.gif ..NEVER in my wildest dream I thought of a cookie as a filling?????!! icon_eek.gif ...am I getting the right idea? the cookie is the filling of the cake, right?
So, do you have to bake a gigantic cookie? what kind? is it a thin cookie so it won't crash your bottom layer? would the NFSC work? and the cookie won't cumble? sorry girls, this concept puzzles me...

a cookie in the middle of a cake... icon_confused.gificon_confused.gif wow...

Thanks Rosie2 for asking that question which was about to be my question exactly.

I had never thought of adding a cookie to a cake. Sounds wonderful!

Another question that I have is that do you mention that to clients when they order? Do you ask them what kind of cookie they want or is it just a surprise when they cut the cake?
