Super easy recipe to make cake like cookie stacks using wafer cookies and red velvet whipping cream!
Servings: 2 stacks
For the Red Velvet Whipping Cream:
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • Red gel food colouring to desired colour
For the Cookie Portion:
  • 12 Mr. Christie's Wafer Cookies
For the Red Velvet Whipping Cream:
  1. Place your whipping bowl, beaters and measuring cup in the freezer for about 15 to 30 minutes prior to mixing.
  2. Remove items from the freezer and set up the mixer.
  3. Use the cold measure cup to measure out your cream, pour into mixer. Add your cocoa. Start on low and gradually increase speed to high as it stops splashing. Whip on high until it's light and fluffy. Now add your confectioners sugar and food colouring and whip until it's incorporated.
  4. Transfer to a piping bag with a large tip.
Putting it together:
  1. I find it helps to pipe a touch of cream onto each plate before placing the first cookie. This will keep the stacks from tipping over later.
  2. So pipe icing onto plate, then add a cookie flat side down.
  3. Pipe icing onto top then add another cookie.
  4. Do this until 6 cookies are stacked. Top with more red velvet whipping cream.
  5. Garnish with plain whipping cream and chocolate pieces, if desired.
  6. Repeat for stack #2.
  7. Set in fridge for at least 4 hours, but I must admit the longer they set up the softer the cookies become and they turn into cake which is what you want. I tend to make mine the night before so mine set up for at least 12 to 18 hours. I like them really soft.
  8. Serve with a big old "I just made the easiest cake in the world" smile!
Recipe Notes

You can add everything to the whipping cream right at the get go if you like. I just tend to like to whip mine then add more stuff. But it's okay to add it all in first in one step. Just remember to start out really slow on speed or you'll end up with cream and red food colouring all over your kitchen.
You can switch out lots of different flavours in this dish. I've done it with coconut too and it's amazing.
You can also do this as a full on cake or in small jars. I'll have links in the post to other posts of mine that are variations of this recipe.
