Mini Oreo Birthday Cakes Recipe

1.3K Flares 1.3K Flares ×

Dave’s birthday was just last week. To celebrate, I wanted to surprise him with something other than a traditional cake. He isn’t a huge cake and pie fan so I passed on those. He does love brownies and I usually make up a batch every year for him. However this year I was on a quest for something a bit different. I couldn’t decide what to make when one day a bright blue package of Oreos started calling my name.

The moment reminded me that Dave loves Oreos as much as he loves brownies so I thought it would be fun to do something with them in a birthday sort of way. I grabbed a can of chocolate frosting and inspired by all of the chocolate covered Oreos I’ve been seeing on Pinterest lately, I decided to make Mini Oreo Birthday Cakes.

Oreo Birthday Cakes RecipeMaking them was a bit messy, I’ll admit, but they turned out so cute and delicious that I’d make them again for other celebrations. They are perfect for kids to help with too. When I presented them to Dave he was really surprised. When I told him they were Oreos he smiled, took a bite, and said, “Oh, wow! These are amazing!” For the little amount of work this recipe was I”ll take a compliment like that any day.

Oreo Birthday CakesThe mini birthday cakes were a big hit and everyone enjoyed them. They were simple to prepare and full of wonderful chocolate and creme flavors. I was happy they received such huge compliments and I look forward to making them again soon.

For breakfast I make cake batter pancakes complete with sprinkles and candles. Dinner is always their choice but its usually homemade pizza and I put their age in pepperoni on their pie!

  21. Betty Baez says:

    They look great!!!!

  22. md kennedy says:

    My favorite birthday celebration food is what my family calls the “Moist & Fluffy:” an undercooked chocolate cake (from the box!) with chocolate frosting (from the can!) with M&Ms and mini marshmallows stick allover the top, sides and in between the layers. I use the “double” size frosting can. About as processed and nutritionally empty as you can get – perfect for a Birthday celebration!

  23. I love the simplicity of these yet how pretty and different they are, definitely going to be making some myself!
