Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake

This is a truly amazing, impressive looking cake that merges both a chocolate fudgy style cake with a light no bake cheesecake.  The end result is a rich decadent cake that will definitely satisfy your chocolate and Oreo cravings.

The chocolate cake provides a rich, fudgy texture to the top and bottom layers of the cake.  The cheesecake between the two layers provides a light fluffy filling that has Oreo pieces mixed through to provide a little crunch as well as that wonderful Oreo flavour.  The cake is topped with a lovely milk chocolate ganache, piped with sweetened cream and finally sprinkled with crushed Oreo pieces.

Just to add some further richness to it all, we serve this cake with left-over sweetened cream from the piping as well as warmed up left-over chocolate ganache.  It just doesn’t get any better!
