Wow, what a month! Things have been crazy busy – I haven’t had much time for anything – but this huge snowstorm that we’re in the middle of has forced me to relax. And what better time to bake than during a blizzard
Mom’s birthday is today so I made these last night so we could celebrate properly. When you see how easy the recipe is, you might want to bake some yourself, even if you aren’t snowbound!
Homemade Birthday Cake Oreos
from Chef in Training
2 boxes chocolate cake mix
2/3 cup oil
for the filling (cake batter frosting):
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat chocolate cake mixes, eggs and oil until completely blended. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake for about 8 minutes. Do not overcook!
While cookies are cooling, make frosting. Combine butter, sugar, cake mix, vanilla, milk and sprinkles together in a medium bowl until blended.
When cookies are completely cooled, frost the bottom of one cookie, top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies. Roll assembled cookies on their sides in sprinkles to cover the sides.
