Make delicious 6 inch celebration Triple Oreo Cake.
serves up to 8 people.
Roughly crush/chop regular size Oreo Cookies (10 sandwich cookies). Prepare my Easy Sponge Cake batter. When you get to the step where you fold meringue and flour into the egg yolk mixture, lastly fold in crushed cookies. Divide batter into 2-6 inch cake pans, buttered, floured and bottom lined with parchment rounds. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then invert baked cakes onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
Trim the tops of the cakes and torte the cakes. You should have 4 cake layers.
In a sauce pan combine water (1/2 cup) and sugar (1/3cup). Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 5-10 minutes, until mixture thickens slightly. Allow to cool and flavor with Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon). Pour or brush onto the baked and cooled cakes.
Prepare Swiss Buttercream. Measure about 3 to 4 cups into a bowl and beat in finely crushed Oreo cookie crumbs (from 10 sandwich cookies). Beat until homogeneous. Use Oreo Swiss Buttercream to fill and to frost the outside of the cake.
Heat heavy cream (1/3 cup) until it's almost boiling, you'll see lot of small bubbles around the edge. Remove from heat and pour of chopped chocolate (1 cup). Allow to stand for couple of minutes and then stir with a whisk until smooth. Try not to incorporate too many air bubbles into the ganache cake drip. Allow to cool to almost room temperature before pouring it onto a cake to create drips.
Pour cold water (2 tablespoons) into a small microwave safe dish, sprinkle gelatin ( 1/2 teaspoon) over cold water and allow to bloom for 5 minutes. Microwave on high for 3-5 second, stir well until gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir frequently to cool to room temperature.
Beat cold heavy cream (1/2 cup) until soft peaks are formed, add powdered sugar ( 3 tablespoons) and on high beat in dissolved and cooled gelatin mixture. Vanilla Extract ( 1/2 teaspoon) and finely crushed Oreo cookie crumbs (from 5 sandwich cookie). Beat until stiff peaks are formed.
Use Oreo Whipped Cream to pipe swirls on top of the frosted cake.
If using real chocolate you will need to temper chocolate. If you are using compound chocolate - candy melts follow the direction on the packaging on how to melt candy chocolate disks.
