Oreo Ice Cream Cake

This year for my daughter 18th birthday; she requested an Oreo Ice Cream Cake. I used my chocolate cake recipe and my base vanilla ice cream recipe bur added crushed oreos to the mix. I made the ice cream a day prior and let it set up in a spring form pan lined with parchment paper. The parchment paper helps for easy turn out the next day.

A Chocolate Affair Wedding Sweet Table

I had the pleasure of putting together a menu of petite desserts for a wedding for 200 guests. All the desserts had to be chocolate based.

I chose the following chocolate desserts:
1. Mini Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream adorned with Chocolate Sprinkles
2. Chocolate Turtle Brownies
3. Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
4. Oreo Peanut Butter Cheesecake Trifle
5. Gourmet Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chocolate chips, coconuts and oreos)

Reese Cup Cake

I have been looking for an excuse to make this cake for a while now. I wanted to make it for my daughter birthday since she absolutely loves Reese Cups. Then she decided that she wanted an Oreo cake for her birthday so I decided to make it for my neighbor son birthday.

I used my basic chocolate cake recipe; then I added 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter to my basic buttercream recipe for the filling and frosting. I also added chopped Reese Cups to the top of the filling and the top of the cake. I also poured chocolate ganache on top of the cake.
