Giant decorated cookie Q?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I just received a last minute order for a large round CChip cookie decorated with buttercream. I have the Wilton heart shaped cookie pan, but not the round, and she definitely wants round!! Would you just line one of your regular cake pans with foil and use that? I don't really have time to order a pan, and live almost an hour away from the nearest craft/deco store. (I could go buy something if I had to!) Has anyone else used a 'plain old' cake pan for this, or do you have another helpful suggestion? I have a pizza pan, but it's the kind with holes in the bottom, so I'm not sure that would work. Any thoughts?

Edited to add: I DO have a Wal-mart within 15 minutes... but it's a small-town version, I wonder if they'd have a pizza pan without holes...?

Hey, Melissa!

I have seen the pans they use in the local giant decorated cookie store - it's a 12" round pizza pan. All she does is grease the edges a little, so the cookie does not stick when she de-pans it.

Some Wal-Marts sell the round pizza pans, some do not - I have three WallyWorlds near me, and only the local superstore sells them.

Why not just bake on a sheet pan you already have? Turn the pan on its back (flat side up) if you're worried about getting the cookie over the raised edge of the pan.

My pizza pan has holes in it, but I just cover it with foil and my giant cookies bake just fine. HTH

I suppose I could do that... cookies are used to be baked without pan sides...

I have some options to consider now... that's awesome!

I use my round Pampered Chef stone. Then I take a cake circle and place it on top and cut around it to make the perfect size. I do this with my sugar cookies and they work out great!

I should add... I used a 11x15 cake pan (see my photos) BUT it had the side edges raised.

I've done others that didn't do thatby not spreading the cookie dough out to the edges.... as the dough melts and cooks it'll spread out to the edges on its own. Stay about 1" away or so.... good luck!! icon_biggrin.gif

exactly what I do.
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

I use my cake pans just use the pan release I go up to the 16 inch round in my photo and I do the rectangles too. It all works fine don't buy extra pans. I did and it's a waste. I want to add people like them better this way cause I make them thicker than the thin ones with no sides, they are a much softer cookie cake.

So Im curious now about the cookie cakes... can someone post their general directions? How much dough? How long do you cook them for? Cool then decorate?

I saw an Emeril show where he made a giant CC cookie on a pizza pan with holes in it & he just cut parchment paper to put in the pan to cover the holes.

Yes, please tell how you make a giant cookie! My son is bored of cake now, but still loves buttercream and cookies, so I said I'd do a giant decorated cookie for his birthday, but I have no idea how lol!
