Tasty Tuesday

4 Sep

This week I’ve created my version of a tuxedo cake!

I used half of a box of chocolate cake mix, half of a box of vanilla cake mix, individual caramel cubes, pre made vanilla frosting, and oreos!
I took a circular baking pan and lined it with pam, then dropped in the oreos, as many that will fit. (If needed, break the oreos to fit to pan.)
I then poured in my chocolate cake mix and baked as directed on box.
After it comes out of the oven, i placed it on a plate (oreos on the bottom) and poured in my vanilla cake mix.
After baking the vanilla cake I took it out to let it cool and had unwrapped half the bag of caramel squares and put them into a microwavable safe bowl. I heated the caramel making sure to not over heat it and then poured it over top of the chocolate cake.
After all the caramel is on top, place the vanilla cake layer onto the caramel topped chocolate cake.
To make the frosting I took the pre made vanilla frosting and crushed up about 12 oreo cookies. I stirred the frosting together to mix the cookies in then spread it on top and on the sides of the completed cake.


It is soooo good!
I was going to decorate the top with oreos that were split into halves but decided against it.
I didn’t know how well the caramel would taste, but it was just enough flavor to give it an extra surprise kick!

With the rest of the chocolate cake mix and caramel, if you dont have another purpose for them, use another pan (doesn’t matter what shape or size) and spray pam in bottom then pour melted caramel into the pan and top with the rest of your chocolate cake mix.
Be sure to not over cook, so check frequently.
Once out of the oven, and still hot, start to fold the caramel over from bottom of pan onto chocolate cake. This can get messy! Keep folding until all is combined and you have ribbons of caramel inner mixed with your now lose unformed chocolate cake.
This is perfect for a late night snack and best when still warm out of the oven the day you make it.
