Turn your favorite cookie into a cake with this tasty Oreo Cake recipe!
There are some really strange world records out there. As a kid, I was always fascinated by the Guinness Book of World Records. Now I’m just fascinated by Guinness. (Hah…I kid! That one was just too easy.) Seriously, though, there are some things that just shouldn’t be records. Like the guy who owns the record for the most stuffed alligators (6,739). Robbie has one stuffed gator named Alli. He’s only 6,738 gators away from greatness!
Or take the guy with the 61′ long, 8′ wide pitchfork. What exactly does one do with a pitchfork that’s nearly as long as a bowling alley? Apparently take it to win a Guinness World Record. Or what about the parrot who opened 35 cans of soda in a minute? Yup, world record. Or the guy who recorded the fastest mile on a pogo stick while juggling 3 tennis balls at the same time (23 minutes, 28 seconds). Heck, I can’t even pogo or juggle. And then there was the largest box of cookies (biscuits) set by Oreo in May 2016. The box was almost 11′ long, 8′ wide and 3′ tall. And it weighed nearly 2,000 pounds. That’s 2,000 pounds of Oreo cookies!
I have no idea what I would do with a 2,000 pound box of Oreo cookies. Seriously. But I do know what I’d do with a regular 14.3 oz. box of Oreo cookies. I’d make an Oreo Cake. I’ve loved Oreo cookies ever since I was a little kid when my Dad would get out the gold tin of Oreos after lunch. But get this…I’ve never been an Oreo dunker. I don’t dunk my Oreos in milk. Laura thought I was crazy when she first saw this, and to this day she still gets out a tiny glass of milk whenever she eats an Oreo cookie.
Since I love to bake cakes, I decided to hit the kitchen and turn those Oreo cookies into an Oreo Cake. I went with my go-to chocolate cake, and then I frosted that bad boy with a white chocolate frosting. Oh, and some crumbled Oreos made their way in between the layers, too. You know…just for fun! Once the cake was all frosted and done, then I got to do the fun part. I chopped up a bunch of Oreo cookies and pressed them into the sides of the cake. Why is that fun? Well some of the crumbled cookies inevitably ended up on the countertop. And then they inevitably ended up in my mouth. I mean I had to clean the counter when I was done, right?
So now the real question is what is the Guinness World Record for eating an entire Oreo Cake? I wonder if it’s longer than 3 minutes, 28 seconds? Just kidding. We totally cut this cake up and froze pieces for weekend desserts…because weekends deserve epic desserts!
