    Easy and does taste like a Cakester. The cookies are VERY soft though, which makes them a little challenging to frost, but yummy.

    I haven't made this recipe, but mine if very similar. I use 1 box chocolate cake mix, 1/3 cup oil, 2 eggs. Make 350f 8-10 minutes. Then I use a basic cream cheese icing for the filling, with appropriate color for the holiday
