Decoration

Instructions
 

Making the Cake

  • In a large bowl, sift and mix flour, baking soda and baking powder
  • Mix well till everything is combined well. Keep it aside.
  • In another bowl, add oil, granulated sugar, yogurt and vanilla extract and mix everything well.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients
  • Mix using a whisk or electric hand mixer till you everything is mixed well and you get a very thick, tough mix.
  • Add water, in small increments while mixing in between, till you get a very smooth batter.
  • Break up 25 Oreos in small chunks and add into the batter
  • Carefully fold and mix the Oreos till equally distributer in the batter.
  • Take three 7 inch cake pans and line them with parchment paper. Grease with butter on the bottom and sides of the cake pans.
  • Carefully pour the batter into each pan and fill it up to halfway up the pan
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or till a skewer/toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Once baked, remove the cake from the pan. Run a knife along the walls of the pans to release the cake from the walls of the cake pan. Let the cakes cool down on a wire rack
  • Once cooled, use a knife or a Wilton Cake Leveler* to cut off the top dome part of each cake to get a flat even surface.

Making the cream cheese frosting

  • In a medium bowl, add softened butter and cream cheese
  • Using an electric beater, whisk till you get a smooth creamy texture
  • Add powdered sugar and mix everything together using a spatula.
  • Add vanilla extract and salt and mix again with the electric hand mixer.

Assembling the cake

  • Apply a little bit of the frosting in the center of the Cake Turntable* or a Lazy Susan*, this will keep the cake to stick and stay in position while we apply frosting on the side later.
  • Place the first layer of cake right at the center
  • Apply and even level of frosting on top. Use an offset spatula* to spread the frosting evenly
  • Repeat the previous step for the next two layers.
  • After applying frosting on the top layer, apply frosting on the sides.
  • Smoothen the frosting on the sides using a frosting/icing smoother* or icing spatula*
  • For decorating the cake with 'Oreo bats', split open 3 Oreos (so you get two biscuits each) and apply some frosting on the cream part of the biscuit.
  • Keep the non-cream part aside for using later.
  • Break couple of other Oreos into small triangular pieces to replicate pointy ears and stick on the frosting part of the biscuit
  • Break Oreos into wider pieces to replicate the wings of the bat and stick on the frosting part of the Oreo.
  • For the eyes, apply little bit of frosting on Wilton edible candy eyeballs* to make them stick on the Oreos. Take the 2nd biscuit of the Oreo (non-cream part) and stick it back.
  • Powder the remaining Oreos in a grinder or by packing in a freezer bag and crushing using a rolling pin.
  • Apply the crumbs around the cake on the lower half of the cake as shown in the video
  • Apply a thin spread of the Oreo powder on the top along the rim of the cake.
  • Serve!
