Oreo Cake 2016

Finally, I got around to making this Oreo cake! I had made the cake layers in advance and frozen them. The layers are made with my Hershey’s cake recipe. The filling is made with an Oreo frosting. I had tried to use marshmallow fluff but apparently this should have been folded into the frosting because when I beat it in my mixer, it turned into a sticky gooey substance. I had to toss it out and star over.

  • This is an Oreo cake I baked 6 years ago! I used a box mix for the cake and store bought frosting. The center has an Oreo cookie filling which was made with vanilla store bought frosting and Oreo cookie crumbs. Now I bake all my cakes from scratch. I am baking another Oreo cake next week  totally from scratch and hopefully it will look  better with my improved piping and cake decorating skills.

Red Velvet Cookies

I started my Christmas baking with these cute and delicious red velvet cupcakes. I melted some vanilla candy wafers and drizzled it over each cookie for a festive look.

I then made rum cupcakes and rum balls. The cupcakes have a rum syrup poured over them. I am tired so I will frost them tomorrow.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

These cookies are a regular to make and share with friends and family. They are very easy to make. I sometimes make from scratch but you can also make using Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix. The recipe is even on the back of the package.
