I love this recipe! This same recipe is in a magazine I received a few years back! Delicious! Instead of making the chocolate ganache I made a cream cheese frosting and used this for my little girls birthday party. I had some trouble initially getting my top layer to be flush but after some strategic moving of some of the oreos in the filling it looked great! I had all the moms and even a grandpa asking me for this recipe! 5 Stars! Read More

Rave reviews from my guests! Made the cake from scratch. See extreme chocolate cake recipe on this site. Made a slightly different chocolate glaze. 2T melted butter 2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate 1 cup powder sugar and 2T milk. Blend together and pour over the top of the cake. Refrigerate shortly to set the glaze. Filling as instructed. Amazing! Read More

Loved this cake. Used my own chocolate cake recipe and smothered it with chocolate ganache (combination of chocolate and heavy whipping cream). I made the cream cheese mixture and let it set in a springform pan in the refrigerator while I baked the cake. This made it so much easier to stack the cakes. Read More

I used the "Too Much Chocolate Cake" recipe from this site for the cakes (it's a doctored devil's food)and mixed some crumbled oreos into the batter used "Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting" instead of the cool whip filling and used more like 30 crushed oreos in the filling. It looked just like the picture and was a huge hit. Read More

My son wanted an "Oreo cake" for his 13th birthday so I tried this one. All 6 boys gave this 5 stars! One of them even commented that it looked like I spent a lot of time on it. (How nice!) This looks & tastes so good with not much more effort than just frosting. I didn't use all the chocolate & even after letting it cool for 7 minutes it was still too liquefied & drizzled down the edges of the cake. No complaints though. Might only use 1/2 the suggested amount next time which apparently will be very soon! I'm also thinking about what other flavors of cake mix to use... maybe yellow? Of course it wouldn't like an Oreo but as long as it tastes good: ) Read More
