Cookie Brownie Chocolate Cake Dairy-Free Egg-Free

Looking for a creative 3-layer cake that kids will love?

We’ve got you covered! Check out this awesome chocolate cake I recently made for my teen.

Brownie, chocolate chip cookie, and chocolate cake all put together with chocolate icing.

It’s dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free! But nobody would know.

Don’t think you need to be a gourmet baker to pull this off.

I’ll show you how a basic home baker, like me, can get this done. 

See the tips below!

Keep a close eye on each layer as it bakes and pull each layer out of the oven right when it tests done. In other words, don’t bake all 3 layers for the same amount of time. You want each layer to taste its best! 

So yes, when I asked my teen what cake he wanted for his birthday…

he wouldn’t give me a straight answer. 

He’s not picky. And he’s not real demanding. He said he was happy with anything.

But after prodding a little more, he did chime in that chocolate frosting is his favorite.

I knew cookie cakes have also been one of his favorites, but I wanted to do better than that. 

Did he want cookie? Did he want cake? Maybe I should do both!

Why stop there, though. I added brownie to the plan, another one of his favorites.

I guess the kid really does like chocolate like his mom. 

A cookie, brownie, chocolate cake? Why not! 

And surprisingly, it wasn’t too hard. 

Not only did our family love it, but so did kiddo’s friends who kept stopping by for a piece, ha! 

Nobody would guess this was dairy-free PLUS egg-free. 

And it was nut-free, too, of course.

I made it in one afternoon. Here’s how!


  • having good non-stick pans
  • our basic-ingredient cake, cookie, and brownie recipes
  • you can use store-bought icing
  • you don’t have to icing the sides

See the steps below.

  • one to three 9″ round cake pans, all the same
  • mini muffin pan, optional
  • a cake stand
  • two tubs of chocolate frosting, dairy-free
  • cake decorating tools, optional
  • brownie, cookie,  and cake ingredients

Cake Pans – Here are the very best 9 inch round cake pans (affiliate). They are made in the USA and are silicone coated non-stick. I don’t need to grease these pans and the cake, brownies, cookie pop right out. Plus, cleaning them is a breeze! They are worth the investment, I own two.

Frosting – Here’s the dairy-free chocolate frosting we use, when we don’t make it homemade. Always double-check ingredients and call the company if you must. Ingredients can change at any time.

Decorating Tool – The cake decorating tool (my sissy’s link) I use is from Pampered Chef. It’s truly amazing and makes decorating cakes easy and fun. Plus it’s simple to clean, and all parts are reusable.

See our quick video in this post for a visual.

You can use the same pan for each layer. Just make sure you wash it and let it cool between making each layer. If you have two pans, you can bake the cake and cookie cake at the same time. Just make sure you pull them out right when each one is done, it may not be the same time. The brownie should bake faster than the cake and cookie so I do that one separate with the mini brownies.

1. Bake a 9 inch chocolate cake. Here’s our dairy, egg, nut free cake recipe.

2. Bake a 9 inch cookie cake. Here’s dairy, egg, nut free cookie cake recipe.

3. Bake a 9 inch pan of brownies. Here’s our dairy, egg, nut free brownie recipe. Or use an allergy-safe box mix if you can. If you have extra brownie batter like I did, you can make mini brownies to garnish the top of the cake.

4. Let all three baked layers cool completely. Remove the layers from the pans.

5. On a cake plate, set the brownie down first. Icing the top with a spreader. Along the edges, dot icing with a decorating tool (optional) for a more polished finished look. 

6. On top of the frosted brownie, layer the cookie cake. Icing it the same same way. Spread frosting all over the top. Dot with a decorating tool along the edges (optional).

7. On top of the frosted cookie, layer the chocolate cake. Icing it the same way, too. Spread chocolate frosting all over the top. Dot with a decorating tool along the edge. 

8. Dot icing in the center to insert a candle into. 

9. If you baked mini brownies in a mini muffin tin, secure them around the cake edge with more dots of chocolate icing. If you don’t have mini brownies made, these store-bought soft cookies would be fun to use on top, if they work for your allergies. 

10. Put a lid on top of your cake stand and have fun serving your awesome allergy-friendly brownie cookie chocolate cake!

As you can see, this isn’t hard. With just some time and patience and the right tools, you’ll be well on your way to an epic 3-layer cake like this.

If you make it, let us know! We would love to hear and see.
