Cookies and Cream Cake

As you all very well know from my oreo cheesecake post, I love Oreos.  Can’t get enough of them.  I decided I was going to branch out for Brendan’s 25th birthday cause I was having a party with a bunch of our friends and family for him turning a quarter century, so I chose to do a Cookies and Cream CAKE from Annie’s Eats!  I am by no means a cake decorator.  I love my piping bag because it makes everything look pretty.  This cake, drove that point home that I have only mastered the piping bag, and not the spatula.  But, nonetheless, the cake was delicious!  (even if it had a crack down the middle of one of the layers)

The cake is a Hershey’s perfect chocolate cake.  I think the name says it all.  The filling, was the cookies and cream.  A creamy layer, with crushed Oreos.  To die for!  Then the cookies and cream was spread across the top of the cake.  Chocolate frosting smeared around the cake and (sparsely) decorated.  I believe my frosting was a little too liquidy because the piping I tried to do around the edges wouldn’t hold.  Needless to say, I smoothed them over with my spatula and kept going.  Then a few decorations of halved Oreos on the top with some drizzled Hershey’s syrup and we were good to go!

Brendan loved it and I was truly proud of my former non-cake decorating skills being able to pull this off and present it to our friends and family to celebrate the quarter century milestone :)
