Some memories just wrap themselves around you, bringing you right back to that point in time that is magical. When the memory surfaces everything comes rushing back to you, transporting you back into the moment. This happens to me whenever I think of buttercream frosting. Not just any buttercream, although anyone who knows me will tell you I am a buttercream snob. Rich, velvety smooth frosting that just wants to tantalize every taste bud. Whipped cream frosting….you will never find it in my kitchen!
Time got away from me, and I realize that I never posted the amazing frosting recipes that I used for PT’s 46th birthday. I scoured through countless boxes of recipes, pulled from magazines or printed from the internet, searching for the oreo buttercream that had been begging me to try for years. I don’t know what magazine this originated from, and I tweaked it just a smidgen, but I would declare this to be the best oreo buttercream I have ever made or tasted before.
I sandwiched this frosting in between 3 layers of dark chocolate cake. I will admit, I was running short on time, and used a cake mix (Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate). Reminiscent of the Cake Mix Doctor, I always add in a 1/2 cup – 1 cup of sour cream to the batter. You would not believe how moist it makes the cakes!! This was the bottom round layer of the casino cake. I only used the oreo cream as the center of the cake, choosing to use normal buttercream as the topping, as I didn’t want to take any chances my first go round with fondant. Wanted it to be as smooth as possible with no threat of an oreo poking through…
I hope you enjoy this buttercream frosting as much as I did!
Double Stuffed Oreo Buttercream
6 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
25 Double Stuff Oreos, centers removed
5 Double Stuff Oreos
3-4 cups powdered sugar
Milk to thin
Beat butter and Oreo filling (25) for about 3 minutes on medium-high speed.
Make sure mixture is smooth, you don’t want to see any filling bits.
Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Add 5 Oreos, and beat until they are crushed into the frosting, you don’t really want too many chunks—If you haven’t eaten all of the Oreo ‘backs’, throw in some of these as well.
If frosting is too thick, thin with milk.
