Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

For a beautiful young lady who is turning 10 today !

My baby is 10 years old today. How the ten years went by I do not know. But as I woke up this morning, the memories of the first time I laid my eyes on her felt like it was yesterday.

It is an emotional day for me.  Ten years seem like a lot of time, but that first time when she looked up to me and laid her tiny head against my beating heart, seems it just happened; the excitement of the surprise and the feelings untold that can only be felt when you are waiting to meet your first child.

Well she is no more a baby and the double digit number nudges hard on the parents – kind of an awakening experience. I do not want to get mushy here. I know all the parents out there can hear me.

She is ten and she is  a mischievous brat!

Life moved slowly until she was 5.

When she was five, and she posed for me…it does not happen anymore…

Once school started, time picked up in a storm….

She is a no fancy girl, who decided to go low on the celebration as she does every year. A quiet time at home with family and then a play date  and ice cream with two of her best friends over the weekend is her kind of a happy day. Her little sister announced two days before her birthday that she will “give her a bagful of kisses which she can pour out in her heart”. I was stunned by her expression, for only a child can come up with a poetry like that.

And the birthday girl wanted  a store bought cookie cake with lots of icing, much to the distress of her food  blogger mom. You would understand why I was “shocked” to why she would not want a home baked classic cake, wouldn’t you? So I sneaked up while she was in school and baked this cookie cake. I also gave her a choice that if she does not like it, we can always go and get one.

She did not believe me  that I baked it!  (Well she did later…) And she loved the cake….

I did use the store bought  icing  (and added a bit of  light color and citrus fragrance) to satisfy her. After all it is her birthday.

    happy birthday to Prathna!! Hope you had a great day 🙂

  • Happy Birthday to Prarthana! That’s a sweet name 🙂 The cake sure looks gorgeous, who would want a store bought cake after taking a bite from that! Hope you guys had fun!

    Coming to your question on my Momo post. Yes, I used wanton wrapper, the thin ones. I used to make the wrapper at home, but seriously it’s so tiring and when we both start eating momo we can’t stop. So, i thought it would be best to use those wrappers and eat as many momo as we want 🙂 The steamer i used is a bamboo steamer. Found it in 99 ranch market, Chinese market. Original momo steamer is made of steal but there is really not much difference.

  • Happy Birthday to ‘P’!!! I’m sure you mom entertained your day! God bless…

    Soma, you’re one of the best mommy! 🙂

    ur post is lovely.
    I just tried your cake,I need to know what is the consistency supposed to be like? hard like a cookie? the batter was pretty thick.I had made it eggless with an egg replacer.The cake tasted awesome,but the consistency was hard.just needed to confirm.Love your posts:)


    The consistency should be like any cookie cake.. not a crunchy cookie.. like any regular chocolate chip cookie, but slightly softer (as it gets a bit higher/taller than a regular cookie) on the inside.. That is how mine was. It was not like you have to bite with a big crunch and noise.. I hope it helps and I hope the cake works out well..
