VANILLA BUTTERCREAM

1. Beat the shortening and butter until smooth.
2. Slowly add 3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
3. Mix in the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp water.
4. Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add more water to get the right consistency.

TO PUT THE CAKE TOGETHER

1. Use a large serrated knife to remove the edges of the middle and bottom cookie layers, if needed. Sometimes the centers of the cookies fall a bit and it can be good to cut off the edges, so that the layers are even.
2. Place bottom cookie (Funfetti) on your cake plate.
3. Top cookie with icing. I used my Ateco 844 icing tip to pipe a nice, thick layer.
4. Top icing with next cookie (chocolate), then add another layer of icing.
5. Add last layer of cookie (classic cookie), then finish off by piping icing around the edges and adding sprinkles.
