Does anyone remember Oreo Cakesters? They first came out in the early 2000’s and then discontinued in 2012. Why does everything that tastes amazing get discontinued?
I remember eating these in my college and grad school years. Throw a package in my bag and snack in class. They were perfect for satisfying my sweet tooth! So after researching online, I was able to find the recipe on another blog and recreated them! So unbelievably delicious!
A chocolate cake like sandwich layered between homemade cream. The consistency is pretty much a whoopi pie. However, that cream inside of an Oreo is everyone’s favorite and what makes this an Oreo cakester. They are easy to make and now I don’t have to worry about Nabisco never bringing them back. I can just make my own at home!
Ingredients for oreo cakesters
tips and tricks
There are a couple of things that need to be followed for the Oreo cakesters to turn out perfectly. So please follow below!
- Using a tbsp, drop the cookies at least 3 inches apart on the baking mat so they do not mold together while baking.
- Bake time is IMPORTANT. 5-7 minutes max or the texture of the cakester will not turn out well and ruin dessert.
- Using a piping bag with a large round tip allow for more round circles when baking. Otherwise some will comes out asymmetrical.
- When making the dreamy cream we all love, mix for at least 5 minutes until super smooth and creamy. If it is not mixed well, it will not taste well.
- Wrapping in plastic wrap and putting in the fridge is optional but I feel it makes the cookie sandwich taste much better!
How to make the oreo Cakester
- Prepare baking sheets and oven: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with silicon mats or baking sheets.
- Make cookie batter: Prepare the chocolate cake batter in a mixing bowl. Add to piping bag to pipe circles on mat.
- Make cream filling: Mix cream ingredients for 5 minutes until smooth. Set aside.
- Bake cookies: Bake for 5-7 minutes until cookies are just set. Let cool completely before piping cream filling.
- Assemble cookies and serve: Pipe cream filling in between both cake sandwiches and serve!

fun fact of the day!
