Blue Velvet Double Doozies! Recipe included!

Who doesn't love a good Double Doozie?

Well, now you can have a Blue Velvet Double Doozie! They are so simple and easy to make!


1 Duncan Hines Blue Velvet Cake Mix
2 eggs
3/4 cup of shortening

Any vanilla frosting - you can buy it from the store or just make your own!

Preheat your oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients. Mix until well blended. Roll cookie dough into little balls and place onto a  cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-10 minutes.

- I rolled my cookies to 17 grams each. And I baked them for 9 minutes on 325.

Let them cool and then match the cookie shapes up. Lay a cookie on it's top. Frost the bottom of the cookie. And then put another cookie on the frosting. And viola, you have your Blue Velvet Double Doozie!!

Emergency royal icing cookie fix

So when I was making these life jacket cookies, I just outlined the cookie and then flooded it. I totally forgot that I was supposed to pipe one side of the cookie vest and let it dry, and then pipe the other side of the cookie vest, to form the line down the center of the cookie where the life jacket connects.

So because I forgot, I had to figure out how fix it. Here are some emergency cookie fixes, in case you ever need them.

Left to right: cookie A, B, C

Cookie A: As you can see, I piped a line down the center to form the two sides of the life jacket. 

Cookie B: I let the cookie dry a little bit and then I used floss and imprinted the line into the royal icing. 

Cookie C: I had one cookie left that I didn't pipe wrong. So I actually piped this guy the right way. I outlined the vest. Piped the right side. Let it dry a little bit. And then piped the left side. So it formed the correct line that I needed. 

Hope this helps!!

Naked Cake

So the trend this year is having a "naked" cake. My cake wasn't supposed to be naked. But I ran out of time to do what I wanted to do - so ta da!

Here's my first naked cake.

It was a lemon cake with luscious lemon frosting topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

Fun view!

Thanks for looking!
