My son requested smookies for his birthday this year-as he does every year and also a homemade cake. So, I combined both and surprised him with a Smookie Cake! I used funfetti cake mix for the layers because let’s face it, kids go crazy for boxed cake mixes! I also used containers of vanilla frosting, another kid’s fave! I baked up some mini smookie cookies (3/4 ounce each) to decorate the edges and made vanilla and chocolate smookie barks to top off the cake. This was a huge hit and my son went crazy for it! A successful birthday cake!
For this cake, bake and frost a 3 layer cake.
For the Barks, I used my favorite brand of melting disk- Chocoley. They are called Bada Bing—how fun is that to say! The quality of these chocolates is far superior to those I have tried from the craft stores. These actually melt. Yes, melt! No clumping, no gobs of thick chocolate mess! The white chocolate is amazing to melt as it comes out just beautifully! White chocolate can sometimes be tricky to melt but not with Chocoley!
