If you’re on Instagram you may have noticed a current trend ( I say “current” but knowing me the trend is probably on it’s way out having been running for a while) of topping cakes with chocolates or cookies. As a budding cake decorator, I’ve had my heart set on joining the bandwagon so imagine my delight when a friend asked for a chocolate cake for her beau. Even better, she gave me creative licence with the design. Bliss! Without much hesitation I decided this was the time to try out the Oreo cake.
I give you Mr Oreo 😉
Armed with more Oreos than I needed to top a 6 inch cake, I decided to incorporate the remaining cookies into the buttercream. I’d read somewhere that this was a brilliant idea and I can testify to the fact. It is amazing!!! If you want to try out the Oreos buttercream, you may want to bear the following in mind:
I don’t have a food processor so I used a pestle and mortar to grind the Oreos (cream and all) until it became “breadcrumblike” (yes that’s a made up word but you get the gist) before incorporating it into the buttercream
I made my thin consistency buttercream as usual and added a bit of cocoa powder to the batch I used to fill the cake and pipe the borders and top to give it a mild chocolate flavour
Enjoy the remaining photos!
In the beginning there was just buttercream 🙂
This literally made my day!
I feel I should have some snappy tagline but I don’t… lol
Seriously need to work on my writing skills but me thinks it’s getting better 😉
Have you tried out any new baking trends? How did they turn out?
Until next time have a good cake day!
