Chocolate chip cookie cake

My oldest child turned 21 on March 29th and true to form he wanted a chocolate chip cookie cake.
Super easy, take 4 pouches prepared Pillsbury cookie dough and press them into a greased 1/4 sheet tray. I placed a piece of parchment paper over the top and rolled it out with a rolling pin. Bake for 20-25 minutes (I like an underdone cookie) cool completely and decorate as you like. My butter cream icing is simple as well. 2 sticks softened butter, 1/4 cup shortening, 4 cups powdered sugar, 2-3 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon vanilla (clear vanilla will keep the frosting really white). Start by creaming butter and shortening together with mixer until pale yellow, turn mixer down and add powdered sugar a little at a time (about a cup at a time), add vanilla, add milk a little at a time until desired consistency. If you’re going to dye the frosting leave it a little thick to accommodate dye. Decorate to your hearts content!

Yummy! Did you use a Russian piping tip for the flowers? Those always look so interesting.
