Chocolate Oreo Cream Cake

This chocolate cake is devilishly good with a Oreo whipped cream filling and fudgy chocolate frosting.

Happy Valentine's Day to all those celebrating! Today is just a momentary breath between more birthdays for us, so the holiday isn't really a huge deal. My middle baby, Cami, just turned 10 on Sunday, and pretty soon, I'll have my boys turning 3 and 11. They are all getting so big! It's like I blinked and they're grown.

Speaking of birthdays, this lovely chocolate cake was picked by Matthew, my oldest, for his birthday cake last year. He is too much like his momma and loves chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. In fact, the more chocolate you can jam pack in a cake, the better. He especially loves Oreos and really liked the idea of a cake that was like a giant Oreo. The cream filling was simply fantastic. It was so fluffy and I wish I could eat it by the spoonful.

What you need:
For the cake:
  • 1 pkg. chocolate cake mix 
  • Ingredients as called for on the box
For the filling:
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups Cool Whip
  • 12 Oreos, crushed coarsely
For the frosting:
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 to 6 Tbsp. milk, plus some if needed
  1. Prepare cake according to package instructions and pour into two 9-inch round cake pans prepared with parchment paper and sprayed with nonstick spray. 
  2. Cook cake according to package instructions and let cool for 10 minutes in pans. Then remove and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Once the cakes have cooled, make filling by beating cream cheese and sugar together.
  4. Fold in Cool Whip and then fold in crushed Oreos.
  5. Make frosting by whisking cocoa powder and powdered sugar together.
  6. Add butter, vanilla, and milk. Blend until smooth, adding additional milk until desired consistency is reached.
  7. To assemble, even the tops of the cakes by cutting with a serrated knife. Top one cake with half the filling and then the other cake.
  8. Fill in the middle with remaining filling so that the sides are even. You may have leftover filling.
  9. Frost entire cake and then serve!

My kids have great taste in cakes. In case you missed it, my daughter picked this Andes Mint Cake for her 9th birthday. I have a feeling this Chocolate Oreo Cake from Love, Life, and Sugar will be chosen very soon for someone's birthday cake :)
