Even as I am approaching my 30’s, I still love sprinkles, and I’ll be damned if a cake covered in sprinkles doesn’t taste better than a cake without. Add Oreos to the mix and you have a 29 year old smiling from ear to ear.
So let me tell you a little about this cake. My son had recently bought a package of Oreos for movie night which ended up remaining untouched. The next day I had to make a dessert for a school function. I wasn’t planning on blogging about the cake, but after testing the frosting I knew I had to. I have made Italian Meringue before but never with Plugrà Salted Butter. That was a game changer for this normally boring frosting. The saltiness of the butter combined with the sweet creamy flavor of the whipped frosting mixed with crushed Oreos. Bliss I tell you, pure bliss. Hands down the best frosting I have ever made.
Even my husband was eating the leftovers by the spoonful! At this point I knew I had to blog about this cake, so I photographed it. Then I made a HUGE mistake. The instructions to the Dessert Night were to have everything pre-cut, so I sliced the cake right before leaving.
In the 5 minutes it took us to get to the school the cake now looked like a huge pile of sh*t. It reminded of a rose that was about to die and the petals were wilting and falling off. I am pretty well known for my baked goods at this school. Needless to say I was mortified, so I made my husband carry the cake.
When people started asking where the item I made was I pointed to the cake, then wanted to stick my head in the sand. Well, about 10 minutes later I looked over and to my surprise people were actually eating it! There were 2 men standing next to the cake taking spoonful after spoonful, telling everyone who walked by to try it. I think I should hire these men to be my sales reps!
Anyway at the end of the evening I walked home with a clean cake plate and it was the best feeling in the world!!!!
For all my Gluten Free friends-I have made this Oreo Funfetti Cake VERY successfully using Cup4Cup GF flour and GF Oreos. The base cake is quite versatile and can be used as a good standard cake, just omit the Oreos and sprinkles.
