Make the oreo Frosting,
In a bowl of a stand mixer, attach with the whisk attachment, Whisk the heavy cream, mascapone, powdered sugar and vanilla paste for about 3 minutes, The consistence should be fluffy, like it is on the picture below.
Use a sift and sift the crushed oreo cookies, so you dont get big chunk of the oreo cookies in the frosting.
With a spatula, just combine.
Have a taste it is magical.
I use a high spring-form and put the first cake layer in the bottom, add a few spoons of gananche, and top it with oreo frosting, repeat with the next layer, When you add the last layer, add some ganache on top, covered it with plastic wrap, and have it in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours.
Just before serving,
Cover the rest of the cake with Oreo Frosting, starting on the top, and moving to the side, I just use an offset spatula for this.
I love this cake just like this, but, I have seen some Cake with chocolate dripping of on the side and wanted to try it out, I use ganache and warm it slightly and put it in a piping bag, I did not like the look at all, but more chocolate is always good if you ask me.
To do the dripping effekt, just put the ganache in a piping bag, cut of the end, and just go all the way around the side of the cake, and press out chocolate.
If you like make som ruffles on top, with a large nozzle Ateco 849,
I lost a little inspiration because i did not like the dripping effect, but at least i got to try it, but the cake itself was super delicious.
Enjoy this cake with a delicious cup of tea and enjoy!
Hope I was able to temp you,
Love, Manuela xoxo
