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!)
