Oreos are one in all my favorite cookies for in all probability forever. I fully love them. The filling is that the better part. I don’t even hassle ingestion an everyday oreo cookie. solely double stuf here. I’ve seen the new mega stuf ones, however haven’t tried them. I actually have been tempted such a large amount of times, however currently that I bake most I simply can’t. If I’m reaching to permit myself to style the items I build, I can not be Downing a whole box of Oreos too.

The cake layers ar created with the foremost damp cake you’ll ever have. attempt it once and you’ll ne'er build another cake. It’s wonderful. Plus, there’s no fancy combining methodology – everything is all mixed along right within the bowl.

INSTRUCTIONS  :

  1. Prepare three 8 inch cake pans with parchment paper circles in the bottom, and grease the sides.
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
  3. Add eggs, buttermilk and vegetable oil to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Add vanilla to boiling water and add to mixture. Mix well.
  5. Divide batter between three cakes pans and bake at 300 degrees for about 30-33 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
  6. Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
  7. Make icing while cakes cool. Beat together butter and shortening until smooth.
  8. Slowly add 4 cups of powdered sugar and mix until smooth.
  9. Add vanilla and Oreo crumbs and mix until smooth.
  10. Add another 4-5 cups of powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add water or milk until you get a smooth consistency.
  11. Set aside about 3 1/2 cups of icing for the filling inside the cake and add chopped Oreos, if using.
  12. Once cakes are cool, remove cake domes from top with a large serrated knife.
  13. Place first layer of cake on cake plate. Spread 1/2 of the icing with the chopped Oreos on top in an even layer.
  14. Add second layer of cake and add the rest of the of icing with chopped Oreos on top in an even layer.

  17. Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  18. Drizzle the chocolate ganache around the edge of the cake, then pour the remainder of the ganache on top of the cake and spread evenly. I like to use a squeeze bottle for drizzling around the edges.
  19. Allow the ganache to firm up a bit, then pipe the remainder of the frosting around the top edge of the cake (see my tips on making a chocolate drip cake) and add an Oreo between each swirl. I used Ateco tip 847.
  20. Sprinkle a few Oreo crumbs onto to the cake, if desired, then serve. Cake is best when well covered for 3-4 days.
