How to Make Cookie Dough Cake

Moving can be hard. Not only do you have to figure out how to navigate a new city, but you also have to figure out how to make new friends – and that can be intimidating. So when a new family moved in down the street, I decided I was going to welcome them to the neighborhood the best way I know how – with a cake

Quick and Easy Cookie Dough Cake

The family had two little kids, so I thought my favorite Cookie Dough Confetti Cake would be the perfect “Welcome To The Neighborhood” treat. This epic cake does require a good amount of butter because it is covered in delicious buttercream and piled high with chocolate chip cookie dough – so I teamed up with LAND O LAKES® to make this the best cake possible.

I’m not going to lie…I’m kind of a butter snob. But when you are a baker like me (and you use SO MUCH BUTTER), you kind of have to be – and LAND O LAKES® is by far my favorite brand. I don’t know how they do it, but their butter makes a huge difference in the final product.

The cake was a huge hit! Not only were my new neighbors very excited about the cake, they were also so thankful that I took the time to come over and introduce myself. Sometimes it is the smallest gesture that is the most appreciated – and I guess showing up with a cake never hurts.

  • 2 eggs + 1 egg white
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour, sifted
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons LAND O LAKES Unsalted Butter, room temperature


  • 2 cups LAND O LAKES Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 lbs. powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • Blue food coloring


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup LAND O LAKES Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles


For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare three 8" cake pans with pam and parchment.
  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, egg white and the vanilla. Set aside.
  • In a bowl with an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine dry ingredients and mix on a low speed for 30 seconds.
  • Add butter and milk. Mix on a low speed until just combined. Increase to medium speed and mix for 1-2 minutes.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add egg mixture in 2 separate batches. Beat on medium speed until it is just combined.
  • Divide batter into three cake pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cakes cool on wire racks until completely cool.

For the buttercream:

  • In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine butter and cream cheese. Mix until light and fluffy. About 3 minutes.
  • Slowly add powdered sugar on a low speed.
  • Add milk and vanilla extract.
  • Mix until light and fluffy.

For the cookie dough:

  • In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla extract.
  • Add flour and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Stir in mini chocolate chips and sprinkles.
  • Set aside 1/3 of the dough for the cake filling. Use remaining 2/3 to roll into small balls for the topping.


  • Once cakes are cool, take them out of the pans, and place one layer onto a cake plate. Using an offset spatula, spread 3/4 cup of frosting on the cake. Crumble cookie dough, and mini chocolate chips in the middle of the cake.
  • Add the second layer and repeat.
  • Turn the third layer upside down (so the bottom is face up) and gently place it on top of the first layer.
  • Use the remaining frosting to frost the rest of the cake. Start with a generous amount on the top and work your way to the sides.
  • Place an upside down cake pan in the middle of a baking sheet. Place the cake on top of the cake pan.
  • Cover the sides of the cake in sprinkles and mini chocolate chips.
  • Add cookie dough balls to the top of the cake.

99% of what I make gets eaten by me or shared with friends or family. But I wanted these guys to last a little longer! So I went with dummies! 🎂
