Who doesn’t love Oreo?? yes, almost everyone who has affinity towards dessert. My kid loves Oreo a lot so I decided to make Oreo cake for him. I also wanted to surprise him further so I decided to create Monster Oreo cake. Unlike rest of the cakes which has Oreo frosting on Chocolate cake, this cake has Oreo inside out and is for them who cannot get enough of these delicious sandwich cookie

Forgive my icing skills, but this cake turned out to be really great and I just managed to click the pictures before my family dived in. They were impatiently waiting for me to finish clicking the pics (sigh)

Not just kids, this cake is equal delight for adults too so go ahead and indulge in this mouth watering cake. You can also make this cake for Halloween or kids parties

I have made 2 layers cake so if you want single layer, reduce by half OR increase depending on the layers you desire. I am sorry for slightly hazy pictures I had clicked for step by step instructions

Do bake this cake and let me know your views 🙂

  • Gradually Add the dry ingredients into the butter and blend until well incorporated
  • Add rest of the wet ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Fold in the crushed Oreos and mix until just combined. Do not crush the oreos completely, there should be some bite sized pieces
  • Divide the mixture evenly into the cake pans and level.Bake for 25-35 minutes until done
  • Allow to cool for 20 minutes. Demould and cool completely
  • I like slicing the top layer of the cake to even the surface, this is optional. I like even layers of the cake.
  • Lets proceed towards frosting while cake is setting
  • Beat the butter until light and fluffy in a bowl for approx 7-8 mins
  • Add the confectioners’ sugar and cream and blend again until well combined. While adding sugar, do not dump it all at once. Add 1/2 cup of sugar at one time and blend
  • Reserve about half or less buttercream for the design. The design can be done as desired. I have used green gel colour , you can use any color you wish. Now add green color to the remain mix and blend well
  • Mix in the crushed Oreos into the remaining batch of buttercream. Blend well
  • Place first cake on serving plate and apply frosting on the top
  • Place second layer of the cake and frost on top and sides.
  • Chill cake for 45 minutes once crumb coat is done. Do final coating and smoothen it
  • Using buttercream, stick m&m or dairy shots on cream portion of Oreo. For Antenna, I have used toothpick
  • Stick eyes on the cake as shown
  • Now start piping on the cake, even if it isn’t perfect doesn’t matter as this is Monster cake. Place Antennas on top. Cake is ready to be gorged on
