Oreo Cookie Layered Cake

Oreo Cookie Layered Cake

When I was younger I used to line up Oreo cookies and eagerly dunk them in milk. Of course coming up with the perfect equation to ensure the Oreo wasn’t too soft or hard was also fun. As an adult I still love Oreo cookies but of course now I only have them on special occasions. I decided to celebrate the Oreo by making a layered Oreo cookie cake.

This recipe is actually fairly straight-forward. The ingredients are simple but the trick with this cake is in the presentation. You can take a simple cake from good to great just by developing some of your cake decorating skills. I often practice my frosting techniques. A cake can look so amazing with an even and smooth layer of frosting and some subtle piping designs.

A layered cake always looks so cool when you cut into it. It’s like finding hidden treasure when you realize there’s another layer of frosting between the layers of cake.
