For the Cookie Cake:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch round cake pan and set aside.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  5. Add Chocolate: Fold in the chocolate chunks or your choice of mix-ins.
  6. Put mixture in your pan: Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared cake pan.
  7. Bake: Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. The center will still be soft. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

For the Red Icing:

Combine Ingredients: In a bowl, beat together powdered sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and milk until smooth. Add the red food coloring and mix until you get the desired color.


  1. Once the cookie cake is completely cooled, put your icing in a piping bag with a star tip and pipe around the edges.
  2. Sprinkle the Stupid Cupid Mix on your iced edges.
  3. Place your gnomes by carefully pressing them into the icing one by one.

Cut into pie shaped slices and enjoy!
