OREO® Layer Cake

I love Oreo's and I love cake! So why not combine the two...? This cake is like two big and soft Oreo's staked on top of each other! It's fun to make and delicious to eat!

OREO® Layer Cake

1 Box of chocolate cake mix
(follow instructions on the back of the box to see what other ingredients will be needed, my box called for eggs, oil and water)
1 Box of M.Christie® chocolate wafer cookies
3 Cups whipping cream
4 Tbs confectioners sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

1) Follow instructions given on box to preheat oven and line two 8 or 9in round baking pans
2) Place a large bowl and electric beaters in fridge to chill for later to make whipping cream
3) Prepare and bake cakes following the instructions given on the box
4) Once baked (when toothpicks inserted come out clean), cool on racks for 10min then remove from pans and cool completely
5) Meanwhile, prepare whipping cream by pouring cream into chilled bowl and beat with an electric beater until soft peaks form
6) Slowly add sugar and vanilla and beat until desired consistency
7) Gently slice off top of one cake so that you have a flat surface to work with*
8) Evenly layer flattened cake with a whipped cream layer
9) Evenly place chocolate wafers on top of whipped cream layer
10) Gently and evenly add another layer of whipped cream on top of the wafer layer
11) Repeat steps 7-10 and add one cake on top of the other
12) Use remaining whipped cream to cover all sides of cake, then decorate cake with remaining chocolate wafers to your desire
13) Store in fridge for a few hours to allow the wafers to soak up the whipped cream and become a soft cookie
14) Remove from fridge, cut, and enjoy!

*I haven't decided what to do with the left over round tops of the cakes yet, but I guess you could make a mini OREO® layer cake as well!
