{Recipe Recap} Oreo Overload Cake

For my boss’s birthday treat, I adapted this recipe by simplifying things a bit – no chocolate ganache and no Oreo truffles.  Instead, I frosted the cake top to bottom with an easy but delicious vanilla buttercream and decorated the whole thing with Oreos and crumbs.


The cake was very rich but quite good.  The middle cheesecake layer was my kind of cheesecake: sweetened with Cool Whip and crushed Oreos.


You’ll have to take my word that there were three layers (Devil’s Food chocolate cake on the bottom, the no-bake Oreo cheesecake layer in the middle, then more cake on top) because I didn’t get any pictures after cutting the cake.  I know, shame on me as a blogger.  You know what’s funny?  The original blogger doesn’t have any pictures of the inside either.  But her pictures of the outside are lightyears better than mine so do yourself a favor and go drool over her site.


If you need to make something for an Oreo fan, keep this cake in mind.
