A few weeks back a really good friend of mine came to dinner and brought along an Icebox Cake. It was one of the most delicious cakes desserts I have had. She got the recipe from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook which she brought when she was in New York last year.
At the weekend we were invited to a family gathering and I said I would do dessert. Remembering how delicious it was I wanted to make something similar. I finally settled on an Oreo Cake which I found on smitten kitchen via Pinterest.
It was really easy to make and the end result was fab. I made a few adjustments to the recipe on smitten kitchen. I separated the Oreo’s and whipped the insides in with the fresh cream. Once I had whipped the two together so that it was nice and thick I then added a couple of teaspoons of Cointreau. It was delicious. You have to make the cake the night before and leave the “cake/biscuit” tower in the fridge to allow the biscuits to soften and take on a cake like texture. I would rate this with a 9 out of 10 for ease of making and end result. It costs a fair bit to make (so best to pick up the Oreo’s when they are on special offer) and seriously I dread to think of the number of Weight Watchers points each slice would contain. But it looked impressive.
