Cookie Cake-- I don't know what else to call it-- have ???'s

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Do any of you do "cookie cakes" or the large cookies like the ones from the shops in the mall? How much do you charge? How detailed do you get? Do you just try and do them like the ones from Great American Cookie Co. (for example) -- usually white and choc. -- just big basic decorations? Do you use a special cookie recipe? Do you have any tips? Thanks--Kim

I make the giant 12inch Birthday Cookie. I have one due Sunday that is Chocolate chip. I have my recipes for that size, but if U have any cookie recipe I imagine that would work as long as it would yield at least 2 dozen cookies. I like for mine to have a little height as well as diameter to them. The one Iam doing Sunday will have an edible image of the Birthday boy in his youth and chocolate frosting piped on. You can use cut outs or whatever U like just the same as decorating a cake. My 12inch is $35.00 plus $10.00 xtra for the edible image. Other wise the decorations are included in the price. Unless they want something elaborate and over the top.

Sweet treats, I'm assuming you use the same temp to bake them (correct me if I'm wrong) but how long are they in the oven?

sweet treats, do you add anything to a standard chocolate chip recipe in order to acheive the height you're talking about?
Do you bake them in a pizza pan?
What do you use to put them on for delivery? A cake circle? Do you deliver in cake boxes?

Sorry so many questions. This seems like such a good idea to make for friends and family when i'm in a pinch for time and can't RI cookies.

I put them in pizza boxes. They're just the right size.

So you bake them in 12 inch pizza pans and slide them into the box as is or do you use a cake circle underneath?
Are the boxes clear white or do they have pizza designs on them? Do you decorate the box?

I bake them in big round pans (I think pizza pans are too shallow), slide them onto cake circles, and place in white, corrugated pizza boxes that I bought from either Papermart or Nashville Wraps. And I usually wrap the box in curling ribbon.

When I make a giant cookie, I use the regular toll house recipe...I always use real butter with it and it makes a difference in the texture. I bake it at 350 instead of 375, in a pan lined with foil and sprayed with nonstick spray. You can use a cake pan for it. The foil makes it easy to lift the cookie out when it's done...let cool all the way first so it hardens up.

I've never sold one...but they're easy to make and cheaper than cake, ingredient-wise, so it's not a bad idea at all.

Here's one of mine: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1208467

That looks very yummy! How would you transport that?

I just put it on a cake board and then set it in a cardboard tray (the kind that bottled water comes in) with waxed paper taped over the top. The pizza box would have been a better idea but none of the pizza places around here would sell me one (those party poopers!). A cake box would probably have worked too but I didn't think of it at the time icon_biggrin.gif

I know that papermart sells blank pizza boxes but they are pricey.

I do several cookie cakes, but I like to make mine look like cakes. My Wall-E cake is a cookie cake as is my Darth Vadar, Spiderman, and yellow flower in my picture gallery. I bake them in cake pans. I even cut them into shapes(better when cookie is still warm (I use pre made templates I create ahead of time). I charge more for cookie cakes than cakes(the ingredients cost more, chocolate chips, vanilla, butter, etc.). I frost with buttercream (and even cover in fondant like a cake). Sky is the limit.

Average price per person is $3.50. So depending on number of servings. They go over better with kids. I used to have lots of cake left at kids parties(minus frosting), but my cookie cakes are almost always gone!

I bake mine on 325 and watch them. Barely let them brown(cookies set up more when they cool). They are great have fun!

I bake at 375 for about 20 to 24 minutes
