I have had "get haircut" and "GO TO DENTIST" on my to-do list for months, and yes, the latter has been in all caps. Finally, due to an issue with a tooth that I don't want to talk about (because Google has led me to believe it's DEAD), I decided that making a dentist appointment was more crucial than getting that long bob, or lob. So today, I am going to see my new NY dentist and I'm terrified. Maybe that is because late last night, I sat and ate a giant piece of this RIDICULOUS cake and drank a glass of red wine. BUT THEN I FLOSSED (for the first time in forever) SO EVERYTHING IS OKAY.
Our beloved nanny turned 27 this week, and since she is an Oreo-lover I wanted to find a cake that truly highlighted the famous cookie. I came across this recipe and after realizing actual Oreos are layered below the cake batter, I knew it was the one. Because I ran out of cookies (and because I was trying to make the cake SLIGHTLY less rich) I only layered them in one of the cakes. This, cake, is, SO INTENSE... and so Oreoy, which should be a legit word in the Scrabble dictionary I think. The Oreo creme filling and the chocolate buttercream are unreal. I think my dentist will approve.
