My Son’s Decadent Birthday Cake!

Intensely decadent, over decorated, dripping with chocolate and entombed in a buttercream made of blitzed, pulverized Oreo Cookies:  It’s the perfect birthday cake for a teenager!

Cake Schematics:

Cake:  My Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake (recipe in video below)

Icing:  Oreo Buttercream

  • 1 lb butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pulverized oreo cookies (Oreo Dust)
  • 1-4 to 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Viewer Jenny suggested using salted butter, and I agree.  That may have taken a bit of the too-sweet sting off of the icing.  You could also use unsalted butter and add a pinch or two.

Chocolate Rosettes:  Made from the chocolate buttercream in the video below

Ganache (chocolate sauce):  Recipe here LINK

Garnish:  More Oreos and M&M’s

Directions for assembly can be found on my show (second vid below).

Thanks, as always for your views and shares!
