This was a hit with our youth group! I made it for a girl's 18th birthday and everyone loved it. I added one box of chocolate pudding mix to the cake mix and it made it extraordinarily moist. Also, make sure the filling is very cold before you put it on the cake or else it will spill over. I actually put mine in the freezer before putting the chocolate topping on it and it worked well.
This looked cool but it was just OK. I thought the middle filling was too rich & sweet.
Wonderful recipe. I used the recipe for "Sandy's Chocolate Cake" which yields a three layer super moist chocolate cake and I used this recipe for the unique OREO filling inside. I've used this combo a few times and had rave reviews.
Yummers! This cake was great! It was different then your everyday cakes. The part that goes in the middle was like tasting heaven! And it was so simple to make. I loved it and will for sure make this again!
Good cake, simple to make. Who doesn't love the combo of Oreos and cream cheese? I used 1/2 as much butter and chocolate baking squares. I spread some of the Oreo filling in the middle, and some on top of the finished cake. I then drizzled edges of cake with melted chocolate and garnished with Oreo halves.
I am a beginner when it comes to baking and I was thrilled with this cake! It looked like I had slaved for hours and was very yummy too. Who doesnt love Oreos?
I must admit that I didn't have a slice of this cake after baking it. I took it to a potluck party and it was gone in 10 minutes, so I assume that everyone liked it (or at least liked how it looked). I used the Wilton fanci-fill pan and filled the center with the Oreo filling (this recipe made the perfect amount for the filling, though if you want extra to decorate the top of the cake, then I suggest making an extra half of the filling recipe). I iced the cake with chocolate ganache instead of using the chocolate icing part of this recipe. As for the sugar, others commented on the sweetness of the filling so I only used a little over 1/3 cup of sugar and light cool whip and it tasted good to me.
This cake seriously needs to be submitted to that website for extravagantly bad-for-you-but-delicious-concoctions which shall remain nameless. It is, essentially, an entire no-bake cheesecake stuffed between 2 chocolate cakes, with half a box of Oreos in the middle, and the centers from a box of truffles on top. That's what it boils down to. My husband is so proud, he took a picture to share with all his friends. This is delicious! I used extra Oreos in the filling to make it prettier. I don't like the frosting from this recipe. It tastes good, it looks good, but this cake has to be stored in the fridge, and that stuff sets up *so* hard that cutting the cake revealed a huge-fault line down the middle of my cake. Crrrack! The solution, of course, is to take the cake out of the fridge an hour or so before you plan to serve it, and the cream cheese will have stabilized the Cool Whip enough to do that, but still...I think next time I'd use "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" from this site instead. Thank you for a wonderful birthday cake for my husband! (P.S. I cut down on the sugar in the filling to 1/3 cup and could go to 1/4 cup as the Oreos themselves contribute quite a bit of sweetness, and I prefer a slightly more savory filling when it comes to cheesecake type filling!)
