Oreo Cake

Tutorial

This is the ideal birthday cake for any serious Oreo lover ! Not only are Oreos used for decoration but they’re baked in the cake and mixed into the buttercream too.

You can substitute other biscuits if you prefer.

You will need :

  • 3 packs Oreos
  • 3 egg Madeira Cake Mix
  • 350g (12oz) vanilla buttercream
  • 15cm (7in) sandwich tins
  • Baking paper

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1

Place a disc of baking paper into the base of the sandwich pan and arrange Oreos around the edge. Cover the biscuits with Madeira cake batter and bake for about 30 minutes. Bake two cakes.

Step 1

Step 2

The cakes are baked when they’re golden on top, starting to pull away from the edges of the tin and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Slide a palette knife around the edges of the tin to make sure they’re not sticking anywhere and tip out onto a cooling rack.

Step 2

Step 3

When cooled, crush about 6 or 7 Oreo biscuits. The easiest way to do this to stop crushed biscuit flying everywhere is to place them into a plastic bag then roll over the bag with a rolling pin. Mix the crushed biscuit into the buttercream.

Step 4

Sandwich the cakes together with the buttercream. Coat the top too and arrange a ring of Oreos around the edge. If you wish, pipe a little buttercream star on the top of each biscuit. Enjoy!
