As I have done a box some while ago for a challenge already, I just had to find something really new to me. Was searching for inspiration for a while and somehow (while I talked to a friend who lives far away and would love to get a cake for their wedding from me) I thought of making a cookie cake! Well at least a slice of it. Wasn't really sure if it would work, but it did! 

My only problem was that the cookies was so soft. No idea why. Was tricky to work on the edges and to miter them. Luckily nothing broke.

Looks a bit like a watermelon cake, but the actual design/flavour was totally random and just happened while working on the cookie. 

The good thing about this kind of cake? It doesn't have too many calories

I adore this unique spin on the challenge! I am very impressed that you mitered your edges! It clearly was well worth the effort, since your corners are so clean and crisp. I am curious about what kind of cookie dough you used since you had problems of the cookies being a bitt too soft for comfort when you were mitering. Was it your regular sugar cookie recipe or something stiffer? I love the overall concept, design, colors, everything! Not sure this has fewer calories than a slice of regular cake, but if you won't tell, I won't tell!

Das ist eine absolut geniale Idee Anne!!! Die Farben eine Pracht und wunderschön arrangiert auf dem Teller und mit der Gabel! Gefällt mir super gut!!! Echt ein Traum!!! ❤️  @GinkgoWerkstatt

Vielen lieben Dank! ♥
Wenn schon Torte, dann richtig mit Teller und Gabel. Sonst würde es ja sofort auffallen, dass es keine echte Torte ist!

Thank you, @Bakerloo Station ♥
For the small front it was better to have them mitered. Didn't match that well though, but working wise it was easier to get everything together.

It's a recipe I have used before. But this time only half the recipe. I guess that I just messed up something with the ingredients and didn't halve the amounts right. Does happen from time to time if I don't pay too much attention.

Haha, but it is filled with air! That beats any classic piece of cake. It still would have enough calories though

Love it!!! Such a creative idea that turned out fabulously well @GinkgoWerkstatt!!! Don't you just love it when an idea comes together in a better way than you had even imagined?! I know that I do...this is wonderful work, as always my dear ❤️❤️

Yes, I really love it! Especially when it looks better than you imagined it @Cookies Fantastique by Carol
Sadly I can't say that about my second entry, haha. Hope to get that finished today. 

Thank you so much for your kind words ♥♥
