First was my brother, Angel's, birthday. Mom made him an "Oreo" cake. And it had a racecar theme, since he loves him some Nascar. And yes, the race track was made out of crushed up oreos.
Once you cut into the cake, you could really see why it was an "Oreo" cake. There were two layers of chocolate cake, and in between a layer of vanilla. It looked like a big oreo cookie. And the best part was the oreo buttercream that Mom put in between the layers. I love cookies and cream, and it was like that, but in frosting form.
I couldn't let Mom do all the baking, and I also made a cake this week. I made a chocolate raspberry cake for the office.
It was chocolate cake filled with raspberry jam, and topped with fluffy white frosting. I used some cake crumbs on the side of the cake (this is a lot harder than it seems!), and then decorated the top with some more raspberry jam. The cake was moist and delicious.
Making cake was a nice change from making cupcakes all the time. I love cupcakes, but sometimes you just want a big fat slice of cake.
Do you like cake or cupcakes better?
