This cake in one of the five Girl Scout cookie cakes I am planning on making. I bought five boxes with the full intention of making a cake inspired by each flavor. I will also be using the cookies as part of the actual cake and decoration.
For this Tagalong cake I didn't want to just make the same chocolate peanut butter cake that I always make, but I wanted to highlight my favorite part of the cookie...the actual cookie! I made a buttery vanilla cake to mimic the buttery cookie in the Tagalong. I really like the way all the flavors mesh together and I think it goes perfectly with the actual cookie.
By the way, I still and always call these cookies Tagalongs even though some are called Peanut Butter Patties. I was a Girl Scout when I was younger and that's what they were called. I remember loving being a Girl Scout and selling cookies. I loved doing things to earn my badges. The Girl Scouts taught me a lot and this was kind of a way to show my appreciation towards a great oranization.
