Is there anything better than wedding cake? I’m not really sure there is. I’m a certified chocoholic, but given the choice between chocolate cake and traditional white wedding cake, I’ll choose the wedding cake every time.
About a month ago, I posted a recipe for my Grandma’s Polka Dot cookies. They are so very simple, using a cake mix and just a few ingredients. Everyone loved them, so I began experimenting with other variations of this very simple recipe.
The result? Incredibly delicious, soft and flavorful wedding cake flavored cookies.
If you’re anything like me, the summer is full of wedding and baby showers! This is both a blessing and a curse. I love catching up with friends and family, but after the 10th one, it gets a little tedious.
These cookies would be oh-so-perfect for an upcoming wedding shower, and they are so simple they won’t feel like a burden to prepare. Plus, you get to sneak a few before you get to the shower! Bonus!
Using white cake mix as a base, oil, eggs and a few flavorings, these cookies are to do for! I brought them to our mother’s day celebration and my sister had an eyes closed, “Oh my GOD” moment when she bit into one!
I hope that your summer is full of fun weddings, wedding showers and plenty of wedding cake! These cookies will give you a taste of wedding cake year round, and in less than 30 minutes!
For the cookie
