Chocolate Covered Cherry Oreo Cake

*See the tutorial on how to make this cake right HERE!


I recently read a review of my blog that consisted of two words.

Calorie Heavy.

I was bit a taken aback by this short and decisive description. But, I decided to to not feel embarrassed or disappointed in the single minded perspective.

Know why? It’s SO true. I blog about baking. And 99% of the time, its cakes and cookies. That have lots of calories.

My blog is Calorie Heavy.

As am I.

Just sayin.

That being said, sharing this next calorie heavy cake with you is a great treat for me. Its probably the most fattening cake I have ever made.

Scratch that… I have made lots of cakes. Its just really yummy.

This quiet little unassuming cake packs a big punch.

It is a Oreo crumb covered, hot fudge dipped, chocolate covered cherry packed delicious white cake.


With a cherry on top.

Although I could not adore the oreo cookie crumb coating more… I have to tell you.

Its the amazingly sweet inside that I love.


Chocolate covered cherries.


Encased in a bed a sweet vanilla frosting.

Surrounded by a rich white cake.

Under a coat of hot fudge. Topped with oreo crumbs.

Now… I made this cake a week ago. But have been to scared to share it! I mean. Its a bit over the top.

I was going to offer a tutorial right away but it occurred to me… people probably dont want to make a cake that should really be served by the fork bite instead of by the plate.

Its just too much! My insane idea to make this cake must have been based on some weird pregnancy hormone.

I think.


Just for the record… next time I make this I am going to add more oreo. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Thank you so much Angie for this beautiful cake stand! I just love it!

    This looks absolutely stunning……..and don’t be concerned about someone describing your blog as calorie heavy – who cares, calories are awesome, and what’s a piece of cake if it’s not laden with calories?!

    You are my I love what you do with cakes..and oblivious to the calories too. yep you wear a cape alright.
    My cake baking as slowed to a crawl but could definately rev a little just by visiting your site.
    I have a suggestion for the frosting, it would take it up a notch more in the calorie department but is an awesome frosting.
    Meringue Buttercream..mmm I use Collette Peters recipe. YUM
    You have made a fan for life or until I can’t get through the door LOL.

    I just randomly came across this recipe (looks magnificent btw!), and just want to say that my blog and myself are also “calorie heavy” – more power to us, I say! Keep up the amazing recipes, some things in life are worth being a little chubby for ๐Ÿ™‚
