Oreo Cake

Diane Hughes


This cake is very easy to make and the packaged cookies make it easy to dress up the frosted cake for a festive look. You can put a little or a lot. Make it your way. Kids love it. I made it for my Grandson's birthday. He said it was the very best Birthday cake I'd made ever.
