I was super excited to make this one because it was my first time actually making a cake for someone other than my boys at home since quarantine. The Birthday Boy Erick told me he doesn't like vanilla cake, only chocolate and I already knew his favorite cookie classic Oreo's. he's also not a huge fan of icing so I wanted to do a chocolate cream cheese buttercream to cut the sweetness.
For the cake base I used Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Mix. Yup, another box cake.
The for the chocolate cream cheese buttercream I used this recipe and it came out SO DELISH. And I'm not even a chocolate icing fan. I buy those sprinkles in bulk because they are perfect for a festive touch for any kind of cake. Here's a tutorial on how to apply them to the side walls of the cake.
The cake tips I used to pipe the top frosting design is a Wilton Open Star Tip and its quickly becoming on of my favorites to work with.
The birthday boy seemed happy! Happy baking friends!
