Stacked Sweetly

This Saturday is stacked with festivities. It’s not everyday your baby becomes a teenager! We’re celebrating with all of Finn’s faves. We’re gearing up on the mountain bike trails, fueling up with pepperoni pizza, loading up wheelbarrows full of dirt for the backyard bmx track, and sweetening up on a Stacked Espresso Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. Happy Birthday Finn!

Directions:

Make Sister Sweetly’s Dark Chocolate Cookies Recipe. Stack the cookies on a cake plate. Top with candles and sing “Happy Birthday” (in your best country twang). Best Birthday Cake Ever!
