Oreo Lovin’ had me a blast

I couldn’t for the life of me decide what to make for Christmas Eve.  I could have done carrot cake, a series of cake balls, a yule log, etc. After much rumination, I concocted Red Velvet Oreo Cake! This cake would combine all that was delicious and allow me to try my hand at cake balls. I do admit this isn’t a simple cake to make but I did most of it the morning before Christmas Eve when my body decided it wanted to get up at 6am. So this is what you need to make this cake.


  • red velvet cake mix
  • chocolate cake mix
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cans of cream cheese frosting
  • ~lb dark chocolate wafers
  • ~lb white chocolate wafers
  • decorative sprinkles
  • 1 package of Oreo cookies
  • Oreo pudding mix
  • Oreo to-go-pack
  • 1/3 package of cream cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • glass  cake dish (optional but classy)

So I chopped up half a row of Oreos.

Then I mixed the Oreos into the chocolate cake mix.

Other than this substitution I baked the cakes as stated by the boxes. I made sure to remove the cakes as soon as they bounced back when poked. This ensured the cakes were moist. I even received compliments about how moist and awesome my cakes were.

The cakes cooled and I used one 8 inch pan of each to make a set of cake balls.


The cake ball recipe was easy. I mixed half a can of the frosting with each type of cake. Then I rolled these by hand and basically had red dye all over me. I was caught red handed (oh such a bad pun). Then I put the cake balls into the freezer so they could be dipped in the melted chocolate and not leave little cake remnants .

COOKIES & CREAM Cake balls


I came across this pudding on a spur of the moment trip to Wegmans. I happened to stroll down the baking aisle and I came across this box. I figured it was better than the cream cheese filling I had intended so I purchased it and this is the filling I made:

Mix 1 package of oreo pudding, add one cup of milk ( I used 1%), about 6 crushed oreos, 1/3 package of cream cheese.


  • Take out classy glass cake stand
  • Put the chocolate cake layer on the bottom
  • Spread pudding layer (I used all of it)
  • set the red velvet layer on top
  • frost the cake with a can of the cream cheese frosting
  • I then decorated the cake with crushed oreos, red sprinkles, and mini Oreos
Let’s look at the cake again.
