This White Chocolate Funfetti Cookie Cake is a spin on the classic cookie cake – a buttery cookie filled with white chocolate chunks and loads of sprinkles!
Just looking at this cake and I am instantly taken back to my 10th birthday at a gymnastics park, filled with girlfriends, pink decor everywhere and a huge cookie cake!
A little girls dream of all things girly, sprinkles and pink. So to celebrate today, you guessed it, its mah birthdayyyyyy. And my 30th birthday to make it even better!
I feel old.
I don’t feel 30. For the longest time, I envisioned 30 to be filled with family time, my kids running around and running off to a corporate job. One out of three ain’t too shabby.
And I definitely don’t think I act like I am 30. But let’s be real (because when are we not here?), what is in age? Nothing but a number. Luckily, I have been told that I don’t look anywhere near 30, rather mid 20’s. I’ll take it. Thank you, Mama for good genes!
Everyone usually toots the horn about this year being the best yet, I have to agree. This next year will be completely different than any years before. Not because of some achievement that I hope to cross off my list. Rather, I am settling into my skin. Accepting God’s path he has laid out. Realizing what is truly important in life. Family life. Seems appropriate as I hope to be snuggling with our little guy within a month.
While I love this blog that I have spent many hours building, I want to be a mom first. Be there for my children to see every first. His first smile, crawl, step and words. The last thing I want my children to remember is Mom always on her phone to check social media. I want to be in the moment. It’s hard in this social media age, but this year has been much more about being in moment when with family and friends. And let me tell you, it’s been freeing.
To wish my 20’s good bye, and welcome my 30’s, I couldn’t think of a better way than with a trip down memory lane. Cookie cakes!
This cookie cake is tender, super chewy with crispy edges, filled with white chocolate and loads of sprinkles! How else should birthdays be celebrated, really? To up the funfetti and birthday cake flavor, I add vanilla and butter extracts. And the white chocolate chunks pair perfectly with the buttery flavor of this cookie cake. White chocolate is smooth and so sweet. So naturally I love it.
While I made life easier and made this into a cookie cake, you can roll them into cookies. Then simply frost!
And the pink frosting? While pink is not necessary, it sorta is. I mean. We are celebrating a birthday so fun and in your face frosting is a must! Celebrating a guys birthday, blue frosting it is!
And pink frosting is already making my 30th birthday so much better.
