Oreo Birthday Cake

Monday, March 5, 2018

March 6th is National Oreo Day and to celebrate I decided to make Oreo Birthday Cake.
I made Chocolate Sponge cake layers and yummy cream cheese filling. To decorate the cake I decided to make chocolate transfer for the topper. 

Chocolate Sponge Cake

Gradually add cooled cocoa mixture into the well beaten egg mixture. Mix until well combined, couple minutes.
Sift together flour and baking powder.
Gradually fold in flour into the cocoa egg mixture. Divide batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Prepare Cake Pans : brush with butter or spray with non stick spray, dust with cocoa powder, shake the excess out over the sink.

Cake assembly

Place bottom cake layer on a place, spread a thin layer of filling onto the cake. Take crushed Oreo cookies and with the spoon spread them out to the sides, but avoid going all the way to the edge of the cake. Top it with another layer of filling. Smooth out the top. Put the top cake layer on and press it down gently, pushing the filling closer to the edges. Spread some melted Ghirardelli chocolate wafers on the top cake layer to even out the surface. Carefully pick up parchment with chocolate transfer, turn it upside down. Then position chocolate transfer onto the cake, press down gently and carefully peel off the parchment to reveal the happy birthday message.
