Homemade favors add that extra personal touch to showers. By using Pillsbury® Sugar Cookie dough, it is easy to create a DIY wedding shower favor for guests. Stacking three sizes of cookies creates a cute mini wedding cake that tastes good, too! 

Let me show you how to create your own cookie cakes. Start with a roll of Pillsbury® Sugar Cookie dough and 2 cookie cutters. With a knife, I cut out 8 (1/4-inch) slices for the bottom. Then with cookie cutters, I cut out twelve 1-inch and twelve 1-1/2-inch rounds. (Actually, they were biscuit cutters that came in a set.)

Bake the cookies for 7 minutes. Check the small cookies and remove if they are starting to brown. Cook 3 to 4 more minutes or until the edges start to brown. Remove from pan and cool.

Using a whisk, mix the frosting ingredients until smooth. When you dunk the cookie in the frosting, it should form a nice glaze but drip off. If it is too thick, add more milk.

Place a dollop of frosting on the bottom cookie; place the next cookie on top. I used two large cookies for the bottom, three 1-1/2-inch cookies for the middle and three 1-inch cookies at the top.
