  • Mixer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Baking pan
  • Pipping bag
  • Medium bowl


For The Cookie Cake:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract see notes
  • 2.25 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup jimmy sprinkles

For The Frosting:

  • 3/4 cup (12 tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • extra sprinkles for decorating


For The Cookie Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Grease 3 round 6” pans or 2 round 8”-pans.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar together with a hand or stand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in the eggs and mix until just combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients and stir them into the wet ingredients. Then fold in the white chocolate chips and sprinkles.
  • Divide the cookie dough between the baking pans and place on a rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of pan you use. The middle should still look slightly doughy when you remove it, but be a deep golden brown around the edges. A toothpick inserted should let you know when the cookie is done.
  • After the cookies have cooled in the pans for about 5 minutes, then turn out on a cooling rack until completely cool.

For The Frosting:

  • Beat together the butter and powdered sugar and vanilla extract together until fluffy and smooth, about 5 minutes. Add the whipping cream until the frosting is a spreadable consistency.
  • Use a sharp knife to trim the tops of the cookies to make them even. Stack them together, spreading a generous layer of frosting between each. You can also pipe rosettes on top.
  • Generously add sprinkles to the top.


And if you’re after the traditional box mix funfetti cake flavor, give clear imitation vanilla extract a try. You can find it at any store that has a cake department with the other flavors.
