Oreo Cookie Cake

Oreo Cookie Cake

I have had a craving for a light and fluffy cake, but I didn’t know what to make.  Then I asked my son and he said make it taste like Oreos.  Sounds like a plan.  So I decided to create a super simple, super delicious cake. The basis for this cake is a simple box cake mix, but the frosting and Oreos put it over the top.

Layered Pumpkin Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin layer cake with orange cream cheese frosting

Dana’s Aunt Lois sends me recipes every once in a while.  Lois has great taste, so I try to make them whenever possible.  Last week, she sent me a recipe from Tea Time Magazine that looked absolutely fabulous.  We decided that we should make it right away.  This recipe makes one half of a sheet cake and then cuts it in thirds to make a layer cake.  The cake is layered with a fresh Orange Cream Cheese frosting.  The orange in the frosting gives the cake a little something extra that is different from other pumpkin cakes.  It keeps you guessing.  The cake was delicious.
