Erin, our awesome submitter for today, said, "I wanted to do a cars themed birthday for my li'l guy, but was having a trouble finding a cake I thought I could do (he is sensitive to red40 so I thought choosing 'Mater' might work better)."
The Original Pin:
Erin decided to do a cookie cake rather than a cake cake. "After mixing up cookie dough and laying it out on a cookie sheet, my husband meticulously cut out the outline of "mater". Then we baked it..... and of course, out of the oven comes one big giant blog (I don't know what we were thinking) haha. But we just cut the cookie again, and used some icing to give him life. I used the 'brown' of chocolate chip cookies to eliminate having to ice the whole thing. I used this recipe (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/
sugar-cookie-icing/) to make the icing and the icing looked great but tasted pretty awful! We pretty much just ate the parts that weren't iced! haha"
I love the idea of doing the cookie cake, that's genius. Again though, I love cookies.
