Make Magic in the Kitchen w/ Doughcuts 4th of July Layered Cookie Cake!

It’s almost time to celebrate the 4th of July! Make something delicious to share with your family.

Celebrate 4th of July, and make magic in the kitchen using the hottest new baking trend, DoughCuts, with an Independence day layered cookie cake, made with their unique “print-at-home” cookie cake templates. The company helps people create precious family memories through their food. The molds help cut out large cookie shapes with ease and offer accessories to match like silicone baking mats and a cookie dough cutting tool. Cookie cakes are traditionally created as large chocolate chip cookies with a message in icing. 

Founder Lisa Moulden is taking this antiquated version and turning it on it’s head with a new and improved style-- a layered cookie topped with gorgeous decorations, with cream tarts, cookie cake or cream biscuits as the final product. This unique alternative offers a solution to the large tools taking up too much storage space in the cupboard (usually 11” plus sized), won’t break the bank and you won’t need a commercial kitchen! Templates are reusable and take up no more room than a piece of cardboard, which can easily be stored with cookbooks. 

Her 4th July inspired cookie cake is made with 2 large star shaped vanilla cookies, 11 inches tall, layered with a white chocolate cheesecake filling, and topped with small star-shaped cookies with fondant, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels and sprinkles.

More about Lisa Moulden

Lisa is a home baker from a small country town in Australia and couldn’t find a product to help recreate the beautiful cream tarts and cookies cakes on Pinterest, which eventually led her to create her own brand of bakeware to fill this need. She is an accountant by trade, but loves baking and kitchenware, which led her to open her own kitchenware store. Lisa started her first online retail store specializing in sourcing quality cookie cutters from around the world.
