Happy Father's Day!

My husband is an absolutely INCREDIBLE father to our daughter, Josie. Their relationship is just one of the cutest things I've ever seen. They're super silly together and the way Josie admires her daddy is super special. That's why when Father's Day came around, I needed to do something special for Danny.

One of his all-time favorite desserts is a double-decker chocolate chip cookie cake. After buying one for so many years, I decided a few years ago to take a stab at it myself. Finding the right pan was the challenge until I started using my baking stone from Pampered Chef. That thing worked like magic! It baked the cookie completely through in about 15 minutes flat. Since this experiment, I only make them from scratch.

So on Danny's special day, after we went out for lunch, Josie and I started making this special treat for Daddy. She added the sugar and the rest of the dry ingredients like SUCH a good helper-girl. I baked each of the cookies and then decorated the cake. The two cakes are held together by a thick Oreo buttercream frosting layer. The top is decorated with vanilla buttercream and a few royal icing flowers.

And here's the proud girl and very entertained Daddy posing for a quick picture.

Happy Father's Day, Danny! Josie (and Lincoln) are SO lucky to have you!
