Cookies and Cream Cake for entertaining

I just love the way the Oreo pudding seeps down into the moist chocolate cake to create the ultimate flavor combination. This would be a great cake to make for Valentine’s Day, birthday parties (Henry’s first bday is in March and I still need a good smash cake recipe…send it my way if you have one!), work potlucks, Summer BBQs, and more! It’s certainly a cookies and cream cake that you can make year round ranging from Summer to Christmas.

What is a Poke Cake?

If you’ve never had a poke cake, you’re in for a treat! The great thing about poke cake recipes is that after baking the cake, you can poke holes in the cake. When you pour the pudding, frosting, or cream (whatever you might be using for your poke cake recipe), it fills in the holes to create an extra flavorful dessert. That’s what makes this Oreo poke cake so creamy!
