How to be Popular at the Office

Have leftover Oreos® in your pantry that will never get eaten?  Crush some up and add them to your favorite white/vanilla frosting to top off a dark chocolate cake.  Or fold some cookie crumbs into lightly sweetened whipped cream for an out-of-this world filling.  People will go nuts for it.  I took some short cuts and used convenience products for this cake; use your favorite chocolate cake recipe (or box mix, if you prefer) and frosting.  This cake was destined for the break room at work, so I opted not to use the whipped cream filling since it would be sitting out on the table all morning.  Instead, I used THIS whipped icing mix by Wilton® (which you can buy at Hobby Lobby when those 40% off coupons are available!).  Be forewarned: one box is plenty to frost TWO standard 2-layer cakes.


  1. Yum!! That is an amazing idea :D I was trying to think of something fun to do for dessert for Kidlet and his friend who are having dinner together tomorrow. Now I know!

  2. That looks so good. My mom swears that box mix cakes are better than any homemade version. Sometimes she's right.

    However... I prefer to make the homemade, from scratch cake and just not tell her. : )

  3. My first thought...Who ever has oreos that won't get eaten? LOL! It looks and sounds delicious!
