Let it be known that I can’t be trusted with reviews about food. Especially anything that contains sugar, as my sweet tooth makes things biased. So I look to people with incredible palates and have constructive foodie thoughts to aid in such reviews.
Meet Gillian: New mom, wife of Meat & Bread mogul, boxer, baker, nurse, friend and food blogger. I can’t think of anyone who is more qualified to give me a honest opinion on cookies. And these aren’t just any cookies!
FattyCakesNY offers a multitude of scrumptious cookies all available in full cookie cakes which is a huge win-win. Keep her in mind for your next event as owner, Jennifer Taylor Miller can also can assemble mouth watering dessert tables and customize your very own FattyCake.
Shipping is usually only available to the US, so I jumped at the chance to have this unique taste test opportunity north of the 49th parallel. And once the cookies arrived from their home in Brooklyn, NY to Vancouver (Thanks Jennifer and Heather!) I split them up and we handed out the awards….
Note: I must say that’s its kind of odd that last summer I was introduced to Fatty Sundays, also from Brooklyn. Coincidence? Perhaps.
Drumroll please! The FattyCakeNY Awards…..
The Betty Jo (Red Velvet cookies with white chocolate chips & cream cheese fudge filling).
Gillian: Winner of the best all-around cookie. Great cookie filling ratio.Nice cookie.
Elena: Winner of best cookie to claim that you baked on your own. Can you really go wrong with Red Velvet anything?
Build me up, buttercup (Peanut butter chocolate brownie cookie with peanut butter cups).
Gillian: Winner of the best in show cookie. Delicious. Guilty Pleasure cookie. Love the crumbly texture and good with a cup of tea.
Elena: Winner of best cookie to get rid of the Monday blahs. So wonderful. I wish I had another!
The Original Fattycake (Chocolate chips, oats, oreos, pretzels, & potato chips with peanut butter).
Gillian: Winner of the best cookie to eat when you are stoned. The pretzels and chips become stale and chewy (not in a good way).
Elena: Winner of the best cookie to eat on a long 8 hour flight. It’s like the everything bagel (but better). And there is a certain time on a long flight where you crave everything at once. This cookie will help.
The Chipwich (Salted chocolate chip cookies with beer caramel and vanilla cream filling).
Gillian: Winner of best cookie to cure a hangover. Too much salt and vanilla in the filling.
Elena: Winner of best cookie to eat after Bikrams yoga. Yup, the salt will help with your pH Balance.
Dark-n-Stormy (Ginger molasses cookies with Sailor Jerry rum cream filling and a hint of lime).
Gillian: Winner of best present for a drunk uncle. Too much cinnamon and too sweet.
Elena: Winner of best cookie to give someone who actually likes molasses. Molasses reminds me of the part in To Kill a Mockingbird when the kids invite a friend over and he pours syrup all over his dinner. Unnecessary.
The Drunken Piglet (Maple cookie with bourbon bacon brittle, Brooklyn Blast! beer caramel, finished with maple, brown sugar & sea salt).
Gillian: Winner of the cookie you will immediately regret eating. Maple is overpowering.
Elena: Winner of the cookie to eat if you miss Sunday Brunch. A little less maple and a little more bacon.
Thanks again for allowing us to review:)
I love my talented friends! My friend Evon, (Cookievonster) has been making me cookies like crazy for years! It all started with a cookie for my birthday and most recently she has made cookies for my book The Love List.
Not only has Evon made cookies for my book, but for Brandee Buble as well. Brandee (sister of Michael Buble) has written a cute kids book entitled, O’shae the Octopus (available everywhere). And of course, Evon captured the book perfectly in a a stellar cake!
Happy Birthday to me!!
These are my custom birthday cookies made by the fabulous Evon at Cookievonster
