Jack-O'-Lantern Halloween Cookie Cake

Jack-O'-Lantern Halloween Cookie Cake

Since then, I've been dreaming up other fun shapes to create, hence today's Jack-O'-Lantern inspired Halloween cookie cake! This cookie cake is SO easy to make and combines the best of both cookie and cake worlds - buttery shortbread cookies, sandwiched together with chocolate cream cheese frosting, topped with ridiculous amounts of candy. Well, it is Halloween after all! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ‘ป

Pineapple Cookie Cake

Pineapple Cookie Cake

Have you seen these amazing, trendy cream tarts in shapes of numbers and letters, taking over Instagram and Pinterest ?  Well, I personally like to call them "cookie cakes" instead because, well, they look like layered cake to me! They're basically two giant sugar cookies sandwiched together with some sort of frosting in the middle, and decorated on top with tons (and I mean tons) of candy, fruit, macarons, chocolate, edible flowers...you're only limited to your imagination when it comes to the decor of these cookie cakes!
