KUVO’s Cookie Dough Drip Cake

Cookie dough drip cake with gold bling Drip cakes are a phenomenon that is sweeping the nation. You basically take a delicious cake and "drip" something tasty down the sides such as chocolate ganache, or another color of icing. Then start piling up fun bits of candy, cookie, cake pops, whatever! It's always a bonus to have edible glitter and sparkle! Here's that scrumptious cookie dough drip cake created by Bobby for KUVO. We're helping to promote their "Live at the Vineyard" fundraising event. This will be the 4th year we have participated in this event. We always have so much fun. The food is fantastic, the wine is to die for, and the music is over the top. To register for this event click here. It's too bad "sparkle" doesn't show up that well in photos.
