Tuesday Treat

Hello Tuesday! Today while I was at Spin Class I was thinking about what recipe I should post today. I have cake on the brain, for one reason, my son Braden will be having his birthday party next weekend and I'm trying to decide if I should attempt the following cake to your left. Braden loves The Cat in the Hat. I originally was going to keep things simple for his 3rd birthday, until I came across the said cake. I know I can tackle the job because this is the cake I made for his 1st birthday.

It is only natural for me to post a cake recipe for today.

Oreo Cake
Recipe from Kraft.com


2-layer size devil's food chocolate cake mix

4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, cut up

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

12 OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, coarsely crushed

MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 min.
