I have someone who wants a Clue themed cake (the gameboard in fondant) on top of a giant cookie. I've never really done a giant cookie cake, especially a square one. I'm just wondering if it's even possible and how to make sure I can get it out of my pan without breaking it.
Any tips or ideas would be so helpful! Here is a picture of a cake version. I feel confident with the fondant work, but just not sure about the cookie. Thanks so much!
Giant cookies are just like smaller ones... they just take longer to bake. Lower the temp and cook it longer and you should be fine. What kind of a cookie? Some are lumpier than others, but you would just want to put a nice layer of icing on it to smooth it out.
Should I bake it on parchment paper or wax paper so it doesn't stick? How long should I let it cool before I take it off the cookie sheet?
I always use parchment paper for cookies. Right out of the oven, I slide the parchment with the cookies onto a cooling rack.
I was going to suggest parchment paper.
Have you decided how you're going to represent the game pieces (Ms. Scarlet, Col. Mustard, etc.)? It seems like you could really do something detailed with some airbrushed color on some hard sugar cookies. Too soft and they might break, but if you are simply staking them into the cookie gameboard, they should stay upright.
I saw it on the front page. It came out great!
