Oreo Explosion Cake {Lundi Little Lovelies}

This cake is DELICIOUS!  I took a couple of different recipes and used a mix-and-match, make-it-up-as-you-go-along theory to make it!  It's got a devil's food base (with crushed Oreos mixed in), an Oreo pudding layer, and a vanilla butter-cream icing with crushed Oreos on top!  How can you go wrong?!
It's so simple, yet no one will know that you didn't break a sweat making it!
Oreo Explosion Cake
*This cake is best when made in advance; that gives the pudding time to soak into the cake and get all gooey.

-Devil's Food Cake Mix
-Ingredients to make cake as directed
-One box of Oreo Pudding
-2 cups milk to make pudding
-8-10 Oreos, crushed
Butter-cream Icing:
-1 cup margarine, very soft or semi-melted
-2 cups powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1-2 tablespoons milk

  1. Stir together cake as directed.  Before pouring into the baking dish, stir in about 4 crushed Oreos.  Then, continue making cake according to the box directions.
  2. Once cake is baked and while it is still hot, poke holes in it.
  3. Make pudding as directed and pour onto the cake.  Use a spoon to spread it and lightly push it into the holes.
  4. Stir together all the ingredients for the butter-cream icing using an electric mixer.  Do not over mix.  You want to icing to be pretty soft because it will stiffen up once it's on the cake since the cake needs to be stored in the refrigerator.
  5. Quickly spread the icing onto the cake.
  6. Top with remaining crushed Oreos.
  7. Store in refrigerator.
I hope you enjoy it!
