Miniature Edible Food Craft: Mini Oreo Layer Cakes

These cute little layer cakes are made by stacking Oreo cookies together and frosting them with buttercream as you would a normal layer cake.  Not only are they adorable but they are a breeze to make and better still they are really yummy too!

I used one and a half Oreos to make my little cakes, (filling included) and chocolate buttercream icing to decorate.  Once iced these cute cookie cakes need to be stored overnight before slicing, this will allow them to soften somewhat.  If you remove the Oreo filling and replace that with buttercream they will soften even further and slice even more easily.  I still wanted some crunch to my little cakes though, the thought of soggy Oreo scared me a little. Mine still maintained their biscuity bite but were consequently still a little crumbly when cut.

This post marks the beginning of a new series for The Extraordinary Art of Cake.  I'm going to be exploring miniature edible food craft and I already have another post coming up straight after this one. 

I know what you're thinking, don't I already do a lot of miniature edible food craft..?

Well yes I suppose I do but this series is going to be slightly different, with less emphasis on baking and more on crafting amazing edible miniatures. Tiny little, 100% edible versions of some of my favourite foods will be featured in the coming weeks. I think my next post will give you a better idea of what form my miniature edible food craft post will take so stay tuned.
