Cookie Cake in LA

ReelMike84 Aug 15, 2008 08:38 PM

Is there anyplace I can get a cookie cake in LA other then the grossly overpriced $35 one at Mrs. Fields?

    sadly that is the only place i have seen the delicious cookie cake, but some deli's like NAte n' Nals have very large chocolate chip cookies for a very good price if you don't mind decorating.

      How large is large? And are they of the softer baked variety?

      Diddy Riese I believe does them.

      They're certainly cheaper at Ralph's (you can even taste test one there, and then pre-order with the greatest of ease)... not sure if Viktor Benes' still does them.

        Really? I don't recall Diddy Reese doing them.

        And as for Ralph's. No thanks. Someone once got a a Ralph's cookie cake for my birthday thinking I wouldn't notice the difference. Sadly the cookie was dry and crumbly. The whole time I was eating it confused, but smiling, thinking Mrs. Field's must have been baking drunk off cooking sherry.

        I'll have to look into Viktor Bene's. I live around the corner.

        I know this post is 4 years old but this is what my son has requested for his birthday this year "A Giant Cookie Cake" . I found some mail order ones on line and Mrs. Fields has one and four years later it is now $45.00. Does anyone know anywhere else I can find something fresh like this in Los Angeles in 2012? Thanks!

            this will sound weird... but you could ask BJ's brewhouse to make you something? Like three Pizookies on top of one another? ( then You add the frosting)

              Thanks, I actually thought of that but I don't think It will travel well. They are meant to be eaten there hot with all the ice cream and topings.

                I know (for instance) that Jamaica's Cakes on Pico in WLA makes a cake that they bake cookies into. Whether they would make you a "cookie" only cake I don't know but it might be worth a phone call: http://www.jamaicascakes.com/

                      One other place I found: http://www.cookiesbydesign.com/locati... - hopefully this thread will serve as the future "cookie cake" resource center for the LA CH board...(g)

                            I have had other things from Jamaica's Cakes that have been quite good. No to the cookie cake place I found in LB.

                            Snookies is really good. VERY Buttery. Very, But good. They're kind of the "gift basket" of choice in offices in Burbank/Glendale, so I;ve had my fair share.

                            They DO do the 'Cookie cake" because I've seen it when I've gone in (they give free samples at the retail front)

                    Cookie Casa is very accommodating and although it's not on their menu if you e-mail them they might be able to do this.

                  FYI, Xtreme Desserts (the whoopie-pie like Cookie place, SO GOOD) will make Cookie Cakes as well. They're more like their cookies (half cookie, half whoopie pie) than just straight cookies, but the owner is a peach and you could probably explain what's wanted
