I hereby present to you… the most wonderful combination of cake and cookie that this girl has ever tasted.Underneath that modest exterior of what looks like a regular boxed cupcake is the magic of cookie, cake, and frosting working together to form beautiful harmony in your mouth.
For some reason, cookies on their own tend to bore me. I think it’s a texture thing? And cake on its own… let’s be real, here… cake on its own can be rather boring. I love the decorative aspect of cakes, do not hear me wrong! I will walk by the bakery section at the grocery store needlessly… only to gawk at the fabulous artistry displayed in the glass cases. But when I’m feeling like dessert, cake would probably be my last choice.
However… I loved this cupcake. Let’s not even call it a cupcake- the cake part of it probably only constituted one-third of the body of the thing. The bottom layer was more dense than a cookie would be if baked on its own, the frosting on top was simply decadent, and the cake layer in the middle rounded the whole thing out.
There’s nothing like a good baked good and a cup of joe. If you are a snickerdoodle fan, I urge you to head on over to How Sweet It Is and make these tonight.
I happened to have snickerdoodle dough left over from making cookies a few days earlier, and I just added some cinnamon to yellow *box cake batter for my cake layer. I followed the frosting instructions to a T, though, and it was wonderful.
Do NOT forget to top them with cinnamon sugar… they look 10 times prettier this way, and add enough “oomph” to take them over the top!
I hope you are loving the fall weather as much as I!
*I have a hatred for box cake… but I was out of milk and had to resort to using what I had on-hand! Don’t judge me!! So, you also have a right to use boxed cake it you like. Please don’t use a snickerdoodle cookie mix, though. That’s just gross.
