Cookies & Cream Cake Tutorial

How can you resist this mouth watering design? This free cookies & cream cake tutorial takes you through every step to creating this design and you’ll be amazed at how surprisingly easy it is to achieve such a WOW factor design.

Paul starts by discussing all the delicious ingredients, but don’t worry if you don’t have everything on the list as this design has plenty of scope to be flexible. To start, you will need 5x 6″ round cakes at 1″ depth. There are plenty of recipes to choose from in the BAKING section. If you need to change the sizes of any of the recipes provided please use our Cake Recipe Re-Sizing Calculator.

You will then learn how to make smooth buttercream before going on to properly layer a stacked cake. Paul then creates a delicious chocolate ganache for the drip effect and finishes with a range of sweet treats.
