    Loved this recipe, the easiest Birthday cake I have made. I didn't decorate it with the suggested toppings, just put some candles on it. I baked it on a pizza tray lined with foil backed baking paper and it turned out perfectly. Everyone loved it. I will definitely make this again.  -  08 Aug 2014


    terrible , really disappointed , I was making this for my sons 16 th birthday , the recipes advised putting dough on a pizza tray which i did , the mixture did run down through the hole s but this was actually a blessing because it saved me from decorating what was basically a lump of salt , the recipe included bicarb which i did add and the correct amount , when i tasted the bits that had leaked through the tray i had to spit them out -- completely disgusting salty taste ruining the cookie , such a disappointment and as i did not have time to bake another one 16 year old without his birthday treat !  -  25 Oct 2013


    Made this cookie for my son's birthday using giant chocolate buttons instead of M&Ms. I was surprised the texture of the mix was not dough like at all. I added a little extra flour but then decided to spread the mixture evenly on the pizza tray. The result was brilliant. The kids loved it and we will definitely use this recipe again.  -  08 Oct 2013
