I like to have options.
I like to be picky and get what I feel like, not be constrained to one thing.
If I was a kid who had to wear a uniform to school, it would have been a rough K-12 life.
Says the girl who ALWAYS picks her clothes out for work the night before so as to avoid a 30 minute re-wardrobing crisis EVERY Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and FRIDAY morning. (Weekends don’t count here.)
Anyhow, options, choices, freedom, autonomy <-- all of these things appeal to our human selves naturally.
So here goes a cake that gives you the best of ALL THE WORLDS.
You make the cake layer. You can throw in chocolate chips or chunked up chocolate chip cookies if you want!
Then you make the frosting: it’s a cookie dough flavored one with butter, brown sugar. The ingredients are 90% identical to straight up cookie dough.
Minus eggs. Because salmonella.
You can swirl cookie crumbs into your frosting or dust the top of each layer with it.
OR you can say FUGGEDABOUTIT and make little eggless cookie dough balls to arrange on the top of your cake.
And if you make the eggless cookie dough and decide you want to eat it and not put it on your cake, you CAN!
And no one will ever know…
Did I mention how VERSATILE this cake is?
The possibilities are ENDLESS.
