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.
