DIY MINI COOKIE CAKES

These little "cakes" are unbelievably easy to make and oh so delicious. And did I mention they're mini? They aren't terribly sweet. Kind of one of those "oh, that was just right" type of desserts. You know the kind. Here's how you can make your very own for your next get-together.  

Recipe:
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
Sugar - to taste
Chocolate wafer Cookies
Vanilla - 1Tbs

Mix the whipping cream on high until it starts to thicken. Then add the vanilla and sugar and keep mixing till it's a little fluffy and plenty mixed.
 Use the wafer cookies like layers of cake. Make them as tall as you want!
 Then frost the outside. They don't have to be that pretty. They make up for it in taste.
I like to take a wafer and break it in have then rub the pieces together to create a cookie dust on top of each mini cake. It seems fancier for some reason. Now put them all into the fridge for a few hours. While they are in the fridge the frosting soaks into the cookies making them soft and more cake like. Amazing, right?
 Now serve them up and enjoy!
Aren't they pretty? I love the black and white stripes!
