Birthday cake Cookies

Last week I made these birthday cake cookies fir a friend for her birthday. They are simply round chocolate cut out cookies iced together in little stacks with chocolate melts which i tinted pink. I think they look great - very effective for something so simple.

Tonight for dinner we had one of our favourite quick and easy meals - pork mince stir fried with soy sauce, hoisin sauce, chinese cooking wine, coriander and noodles, served with roasted chopped peanuts on top and some greens (tonight was broccoli). I often change the sauces that I use with thes combination, adding fresh ginger, oyster sauce, sweet chilli sauce or black bean sauce as the mood takes me. It takes about 30 minutes in total to make this and it is really delicious. The perfect thing to have after a busy day (I was at a conference all day today so didnt feel like doing too much by the time I got home!)

I love the cookies! It's such a cute idea and easier than piping frosting onto a cut out cookie.

Hey Tammy!

I just came across your blog and love it! These birthday cake cookies are a fabulous idea. I might have to try something like that.

I started a baking blog about 2 months ago and would love it if you'd take a peek at it.

I notice you said you like to "bake" & "run". Those are two such opposite things that it made me laugh!
