Is there anything better than an O-R-E-O? In my world…it is the most decadent dessert on the planet. I love anything cookies and cream flavored; easter eggs, blizzards from the Dairy Queen, cupcakes, and of course frosting! I was elated to learn that my 5-year-old agrees. This was her request for her preschool graduation cake, so I happily obliged her.
Any good Oreo frosting recipe starts of course with Oreos. Double stuff of course.
And if you want to get creative for your little ones…you can always add an edible photo on top!
For this cake, I used my favorite yellow cake recipe from Taste of Home. My daughter wanted plain cake, but you can easily add some crushed Oreos to the batter. Then frost!
