Lauren’s Birthday Cake

Lauren’s Birthday Cake

Red Velvet Cake with Oreo Cream Cheese Filling, Biscoff Buttercream Icing, and Nutella Fudge

As April came to a close, I knew I faced a huge challenge. No, not final exams. Lauren’s birthday is April 29th. For anyone who doesn’t know, Lauren is my best friend and Co-WIDBer. As we were also nearing graduation, I knew I really had to make Lauren an incredible cake. Knowing many of Lauren’s favorite things, I made what I truly believe was the perfect cake for Lauren. Click the link below to see how I made this cake, and how you can recreate it! 
Red Velvet Cake 


1 Box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake mix

1 stick melted butter

1 ¼ cups milk

1/2 cup chocolate pudding

3 eggs + 1 egg yolk

2 tbsp cocoa


Mix ingredients, preferably using an electric mixer. Pour batter into two well-greased 9-inch round pans and follow baking instructions on the box.

Let cool and then remove from pans. 

Add Oreo Cream Cheese Filling between layers. 

Oreo Cream Cheese Filling

15 Oreos, crushed

8 oz package of cream cheese, softened


Mix together Oreos and cream cheese, then spread between cake layers. 

Biscoff Buttercream Icing

1 stick butter

2.5 cups powdered sugar

¾ cup Biscoff spread

¼ cup milk

1 tsp amaretto


Mix ingredients, preferably using an electric mixer. Spread on cake. 

Nutella Fudge


¾ cup Nutella

¾ cup chocolate chips (milk or semisweet would be fine)

1 15 oz can sweetened condensed milk


Melt Nutella and chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Once well combined, remove from heat and mix in sweetened condensed milk. Immediately cover cake with fudge.

If desired, crush more Oreos to add around the sides of the cake. Let fudge cool for at least 30 minutes. 

Give the gift of cake…and when in doubt, bake!
