Oreo Cookies n' Cream Pizza Cake
I had an order for a friend's Birthday.
She loves pizza from Pizza Hut.
Her husband asked for an Oreo cake made to look like 12" 1/2 Hawaiian 1/2 Pepperoni pizza.
What better inspiration than the real thing, right?
Don't mind the missing slice...I don't know how that happened.
Both myself and my friend's husband wanted the cake to be in a pizza box.
The only problem was the very short height of the box and the not so short height of the cake.
So...I got my hands on 2 Pizza Hut boxes, grabbed my exacto knife, some glue and ribbon...and managed to create a pretty decent pizza/cake box!
The cake is two layers, dark chocolate and white cake.
The center is filled with a Oreo cookies n' cream filling...which is so freaking yummy that next time I use this filling receipe, I will double it so I can eat the rest myself.
Note: I bought a whole package of Oreos for this order.
There are 45 Oreos in a 18 oz. package, I needed 12 for this recipe.
When I bought them, I told my boyfriend to stay away from the cookies because I needed them for this order.
Needless to say, I had only 15 cookies left by the time I started baking.
Thank You, Boyfriend...you are lucky I had enough and didn't have to kill you.
I used a light buttercream frosting for this cake.
By light, I mean not heavy...it certainly isn't low calorie or fat free.
I left a small portion white for the crumb coat and center lining, colored another small portion red for the sauce and made the remaining frosting tan for the crust.
I made the pineapple, ham and pepperoni out of Duff's White Buttercream Fondant. I have yet to make my own fondant from scratch, but this stuff tastes very good and is easy to work with. It also comes in other flavors and colors.
The cheese is grated white chocolate.
