For the Cake:

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix on medium speed for about 2 minutes until well combined.

  4. Reduce the speed to low and carefully add the hot water. Mix until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin, but that's okay.

  5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

  7. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer the cakes to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Oreo Frosting:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy and smooth.

  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  3. Pour in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy.

  4. Gently fold in the crushed Oreo cookies.

Assembling the Cake:

  1. Place one cake layer on a serving plate or cake stand.

  2. Spread a generous layer of Oreo frosting on top of the cake layer.

  3. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosting.

  4. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining Oreo frosting, creating a smooth and even layer.

  5. Optional: Garnish the cake with additional crushed Oreo cookies on top.

Cake and Frosting Tips

Cake Tips:

  1. Quality Ingredients: Use high-quality cocoa powder and other ingredients for the best flavor.

  2. Room Temperature: Bring eggs, milk, and any dairy ingredients to room temperature before using. This helps with even mixing and better texture.

  3. Sifting Dry Ingredients: Sift dry ingredients like flour and cocoa powder to prevent lumps and ensure a smooth batter.

  4. Gentle Mixing: Mix the batter until just combined. Overmixing can lead to a dense cake.

  5. Hot Water: Don't skip the hot water; it helps bloom the cocoa and create a moist texture.

  6. Parchment Paper: Line the bottom of your cake pans with parchment paper to prevent sticking.

  7. Even Layers: Distribute the batter evenly in the pans for uniform layers.

  8. Cooling Cakes: Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Frosting Tips:

  1. Butter Temperature: Make sure the butter is softened to room temperature. This ensures a smooth and creamy frosting.

  2. Gradual Sugar Addition: Add powdered sugar gradually to avoid a dusty mess and to achieve a creamy texture.

  3. Adjust Consistency: To thicken the frosting, add more powdered sugar. To thin it, add a small amount of milk or cream.

  4. Mixing Time: Beat the frosting until it's light and fluffy, but don't overbeat, as it can lead to a runny consistency.

  5. Oreo Cookies: Crush the Oreo cookies to your desired consistency. You can leave some larger chunks for added texture.

  6. Taste Test: Taste the frosting as you go to ensure it's the right sweetness and flavor for your preference.

  7. Crumb Coat: Apply a thin layer of frosting (crumb coat) before the final layer. This helps seal in crumbs for a smoother finish.

  8. Frost Cooled Cake: Make sure the cake layers are completely cool before frosting to prevent melting.

  9. Decorating: Use an offset spatula for smooth frosting and a piping bag for decorative details. Garnish with crushed Oreos on top.

  10. Chill and Set: Allow the cake to chill in the refrigerator for a short while after frosting to help the layers set.

  11. Serving: Let the cake sit at room temperature for a bit before serving to allow the flavors to meld.

Remember, practice makes perfect, and baking is a creative process. Don't hesitate to experiment and adjust to your taste preferences. Enjoy the process and the delicious end result!

How To Store Cake and Frosting

Cake Storage:

  1. Room Temperature (Short Term): If you plan to consume the cake within 1-2 days, you can keep it at room temperature in an airtight cake container or covered with plastic wrap. Make sure it's in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

  2. Refrigeration (Longer Term): If you need to store the cake for a longer period, it's best to refrigerate it. Place the cake in an airtight container or cover it tightly with plastic wrap. Before serving, allow the cake to come to room temperature for about 30 minutes to an hour to regain its moisture and flavor.

  3. Freezing: To freeze the cake, wrap individual slices or the entire cake tightly with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before consuming.

Buttercream Frosting Storage:

  1. Refrigeration: Store any leftover buttercream frosting in an airtight container or covered bowl in the refrigerator. It can typically be kept for up to a week.

  2. Freezing (Short Term): If you have a larger quantity of frosting and won't be using it within a week, you can freeze it. Place the frosting in an airtight container, leaving some room for expansion, and label it with the date. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.

  3. Freezing (Long Term): If you need to store frosting for an extended period, you can freeze it in smaller portions in airtight freezer-safe bags. Squeeze out any excess air to prevent freezer burn. Thaw in the refrigerator and then rewhip to restore its texture before using.

Assembly and Serving:

When you're ready to serve the cake, you can assemble it by spreading the buttercream frosting between the layers and on the outside. Remember that frosting may soften slightly at room temperature, so it's best to keep the assembled cake in a cool environment.

Overall, freshness is key. Both the cake and the frosting should be kept airtight to prevent them from drying out or absorbing unwanted flavors. If you're storing the cake for an extended period, consider freezing portions to ensure they retain their quality.
