Fudge Dipped Oreo Cake

Tuesday was Trevor's 18th birthday! For his Birthday, Woman made him a giant fudge dipped oreo cookie!

Looks pretty yummy, eh? From the sounds of things, it was yummy. I did not get any though, because Woman said that much chocolate would kill me if I even looked at it, so I was sure to avert my eyes from the glory of the cake.

Here is Trevor blowing out his candle. He's lightning fast, so the photo is all blurred.

And this is what happened next. Trevor unhinged his jaw and ate the entire cake in one bite!

Crazy teenagers...

Woman used her classic "Best Ever Chocolate Cake" recipe from the Southern Living cookbook for the cake. For the filling, she beat 8oz of cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar, then stirred in 12 coarsely chopped oreos and 2 cups of homemade whipped cream. The "fudge dip" is 4 bars of baking chocolate melted on the stove with 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar stirred into the mixture. To get it the right consistency, you then have to plunge the pot into ice and stir for about 5 minutes; otherwise, it's too runny. After you pour the fudge onto the cake, be sure to refrigerate it for an hour or so to help the fudge set up.

Oh yeah, and the cake has like ALL the calories in the world in it, so eat it with restraint.

I prefer to munch on herbs, because they're healthy.

    Please send me a cake!! Via FedEx Express! I'd make it myself, but things always taste better to me when I didn't have to make it myself. ;) Now, go, hurry...start baking before FedEx closes this afternoon!

    OMG, I bet Mr. Karate would love that cake. Mom said it was too rich for her, and that I couldn't look at it either. After my chocolate chip cookie incident, I am not even allowed to smell chocolate.
