I made you a cake. A pretty awesome over the top cake!
This cake is packed full of Oreos, and covered in even more of them. It’s pretty outrageous and completely decadent. This cake comes from my friend Amanda’s amazing book, Surprise Inside Cakes. Amanda is pretty well known for her incredible cakes, both on her blog, I Am Baker, and and in her book, Surprise Inside Cakes.
Truth be told, cakes intimidate me. I like to work with smaller desserts. Or cupcakes. Or bars. I think I’m traumatized from my early years of baking when half my cakes stuck to their pans, never to come out and form a cake. I can’t cut them to save my life, I don’t cut cakes, I kind of butcher cakes. When a client asks me to do cake I get a twitchy. I’ve written a post about my cake anxiety. Heck I’ve even posted proof of why I have cake anxiety, I mean look what happened about five years ago when I attempted to make one of those cool rainbow cakes. Epic. Fail. I’m kind of the stick to a 9×13 pan for cake, frost it in the pan and call it good. Easy peasy.
So cakes aren’t my favorite thing to make. I can always make them taste great, it’s the whole assembly/frosting thing that is my downfall. But I trust Amanda. I watched a video of her rose frosting technique last year, and it was life altering, in a cake making sense. One video and I immediately made this cake. It’s not perfect, but holy heck, it’s no falling apart rainbow cake, that’s for sure! So if anyone can show you how to make gorgeous cakes, easily, it is Amanda. And Surprise Inside Cakes does just that!
Amanda’s book, “Surprise Inside Cakes – Amazing Cakes For Every Occasion – With A Little Something Extra Inside“, is absolutely gorgeous, and the cakes – absolutely stunning! Not only is Surprise Inside Cakes packed full of great cake recipes, but so many fantastic tips to help empower you to create your own incredible cakes. Such a great resource for any baker.
Look at all of those Oreo Cookie Crumbs!!! Um, yum!
This is quite a cake! With a LOT of Oreos involved! I mean when you start a cake like this, you really can’t go wrong!
This is one rich cake! Certainly fun for a birthday or special occasion. Your family and friends will love it.
Seriously, check out Surprise Inside Cakes. I think I can just sit and gaze longingly at the beautiful cakes for half the day (except my kids never let me do anything for half a day, or half an hour). I mean look at this chevron cake. Swoon. SO pretty.
And the cake from the cover? Truly stunning. Can you imagine serving this and seeing everyone’s faces when they saw the inside! So fun.
So many gorgeous cakes, and Amanda walks you through them, step by step. If I can make them, you can make them, trust me! Head here to check out her book on Amazon!
