Oreo cake

Oreo cake will make you very popular, with rich chocolate sponge, crunchy Oreo buttercream filling and simple Oreo decoration. This cake is a showstopper.

If you’re making this cake for a special occasion, we’d recommend making it the day before or ahead of time so the first layer of buttercream has plenty of time to set. This will ensure a smooth buttercream finish.If you want to make this cake even naughtier, cover in chocolate buttercream or even ganache instead and decorate with crushed Oreos.
