.: Oreo Cake :.


I made this cake at my boyfriend Jordan's apartment,
I had limited equipment but it turned out good anyways
It is a devil's food cake with Oreo pudding mix in the batter, it has a cream filling with some crushed up oreos, and the cake itself is frosted with a milk chocolate frosting. Yummmy.

.:Valentine's Day:.

After a shopping trip to Micheal's in Grand Forks this weekend and the store being full of Valentine's Day stuff and seeing all the cute decorations in the cake isle I am really wanting to make some valentine's day cakes. I even bought some new supplies. (A person could really go on a shopping spree in that place!) If anyone is interested at all they should let me know. I have some ideas as little round cakes perfect to share with your Valentine's Day date. Chocolate with a strawberry or raspberry buttercream, or even a peanut butter buttercream sound delicious or even any flavor you wish.
Email me or you can always message me on facebook if you have any questions.
P.S.
Flavors of cake I make at this time are chocolate, french vanilla, a traditional white, and red velvet. I am more then willing to try new flavors.

.:Chocolate+Peanut Butter=Yum:.

Okay well this was the first time I made this cake, Ganache didn't work out the way I had hoped.
This is not the prettiest cake I've made but it is worth posting because it is delicious.
I tried a new chocolate cake, and swirled in milk chocolate and peanut butter into the batter and that turned out good. I tried a new peanut butter buttercream and LOVED it, will be using again for sure. I also tried ganache for the first time, and it didn't turn out quite how I had hoped. I learned some things for next time. But I am a beginner, everything is not going to work out with trial and error. But for all its worth here it is.

Thanks for coming to check out my new blog, I wanted somewhere to post information about my cakes rather then on facebook alone. Its a work in progress and so is my little at home cake baking, I am new but am having a lot of fun experimenting with new techniques and styles.
