Steps for making the oreo cake

  1. Start by preparing the cookies for the inside of the cake. To do this, open the cookies and with the help of a spatula or a knife, remove the filling.

  2. Reserve the filling for the buttercream of the cake.

  3. To make the syrup, place all the ingredients in a saucepan and let it boil for a few seconds until the sugar dissolves.

Preparation of the biscuit

  1. Place the cookies in a bag and with a mortar or a rolling pin crush them a little. Don't squash them too much either because you don't want them to dust.

  2. Once ready, save the crushed cookies for later.

  3. Now in the mixer, beat the 3 eggs at medium high speed for 5 minutes. Remember that all the cake ingredients must be at room temperature for them to mix properly.

  4. Once you have the eggs well foamed, add the sugar and beat for one more minute.

  5. Add the mild-flavored olive oil and keep beating until just combined. Also add the milk and vanilla extract.

  6. Let it mix a bit, and you will have the mixture ready to add the all-purpose wheat flour and baking powder. Always do this by sifting with a strainer to avoid lumps in the dough.

  7. Add the pinch of salt to enhance the flavor of the cake. Then, beat at the lowest speed that the mixer allows.

  8. Reserve a third of the mass, which is 300 grams. Thus, one of the cakes will be vanilla, and leave the rest of the dough in the bowl of the mixer.

  9. Add the unsweetened cocoa powder with the help of a strainer and beat again for a few more seconds at low speed.

  10. When the cocoa is completely integrated, you will have the 2 doughs ready to add the Oreo cookies that you crushed at the beginning.

  11. Distribute them as precisely as you can. Stir the two doughs until the cookies are well integrated.

Making the ganache

Assemble the cake and decorate

  1. Use a turntable with a pie crust and place the first cupcake there. Add a little cream to fix the first cake and add syrup to keep it juicy for longer.

  2. Once this is done, place the first layer of filling, always leaving it as flat as possible so that the cake is straight and level.

  3. Place the next cake and syrup again, the ideal is to now place the vanilla cake in the middle so that the cut of the cake is similar to an Oreo cookie.

  4. Fill the next layer with the buttercream, and place the next cake face down.

  5. Syrup the top so it stays juicy too.

  6. Using a putty knife, smooth the crêpe off the walls. Next, spread the cream over the entire surface of the cake. This layer must be very thin.

  7. Take the cake to the fridge or refrigerator for 30 minutes to harden.

  8. After this time, remove the cake from the fridge to put the final coating on it. To do this, try to cover well with the cream on all the walls and then pass the smoothing spatula and remove the excess.

  9. When you finish, put it in the fridge for 15 more minutes.

  10. Squirt the ganache around all the edges of the cake. This way you can better control the streams that fall down the walls, and you can make them longer or shorter as you like.

  11. When you're done, fill the entire top with the same ganache.

  12. Place all kinds of chocolates or snacks to decorate the top.

  13. Make rosettes with the buttercream and with the help of a pastry bag and place oreo cookies on top.
