Our Sophie, now four, has always been a girl who knows what she wants. What she wanted for her birthday was a table FULL of different cakes. The first one she asked for was an Oreo cake. I mean, how can you possibly argue with that, who doesn’t love Oreos.
She’s seen and drooled over the Oreo cake at the grocery store bakery. You all know the ones, sides covered in chocolate cake crumbs, crumbled cookies on the top. Every week she would ask for one, and every week I would tell her no. I hate buying cakes at the grocery store. They always have an expiry date that’s at most two days away. I assume they’ve been sitting in a fridge or freezer for at least a week. Who knows how many days before that they were actually baked.
So, I promised Sophie I would make one for her birthday, and she didn’t forget. That girl has a memory like an elephant. Now, if I was making this Oreo cake just because (and what better reason is there for a cake), I would have pressed some cake crumbs into the sides. Instead I pressed in these (horrible tasting) pre-packaged heart-shaped sugar decorations. You see, Sophie was born on Valentines Day, and I always feel the need to slip hearts somewhere into my decorating. Even if they don’t taste good, lol.
Here’s what the cake looked like on the dessert table. Yes, the table colours are jarring. It was a Snow White party, and I made the table top and skirt look like her dress. It was pretty awesome, and I’ll have a blog post up soon showing everything!…
