Yum! This came out beautifully. I did it a bit differently--followed the direx on the cake mix box, but that was the only change. Super yummy, and it dazzled the people at the party. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

This is wonderful! I might even make a chocolate ganache to go on top instead of the glaze. I made Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake With Frosting for the chocolate cake instead of from box. I also did glaze with 3 T. butter, 1 T. corn syrup, and 4 oz of semisweet chocolate in micro and then added 1/4 t vanilla. Nice glaze! I'm also thinking next time I might even try to put some peppermint in the cream cheese mixture along with green food coloring to make like a Mint Oreo. :) Thank you for posting!!

Made this cake for my nephew's 7th birthday party and it was a huge hit. I did add Cake Mix Extender to it as I wanted a towering cake and that worked perfectly. Other than that minor change made as directed including the glaze topping which was awesome. I must say though there was a TON of filling and even after stuffing the inside I had over half left - think next time I'll cut that down to half the amount. But the taste, presentation and awe factor was perfect.

This came out awesome and looked amazing! I used a little less cream cheese and a little more whipped topping due to personal preferences. This is easier than it looks and impresses those who see it! :)

AMAZING CAKE!! My husband has been wanting an oreo cake since I don't know when, so I finally found this and made it for his birthday. I'm pretty picky about my desserts, but this one did not disappoint. I used devil's food cake and let the layers cool overnight before adding filling. For chocolate on top I added about 1/4 cup powdered sugar to thicken it up because I didn't want it to run over the edges--it didn't, but it did taste like fudge. Bonus! I can't wait to have an excuse to make this again. If you like oreos, you'll absolutely love this cake.

Such an easy and impressive dessert! I added some crushed up Oreos to the top of the cake, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. Delicious!!

I made this for a child's birthday and it was a hit. Some did not care for the cream cheese flavour of the filling- it does take it into the category of cheesecake. So next time I will omit the cream cheese and sugar and add a bit more whip topping. I substituted real whipping cream for the Cool Whip (250ml 35% cream plus 2 Tbsp. sugar and beat till stiff). I made the cake using a Duncan Hines Devil's Food cake mix and followed the directions on the box. One could easily substitute their favourite chocolate scratch cake for the mix. Cool the glaze mixture a little longer till slightly thick and you won't have a problem with it dripping over the sides. :)

So delicious. I did doctor the cake mix with some sour cream and two extra eggs to make it really rich. The filling is even better the second day-I also used my own glaze-i can see making this again and again...the oreo amount is spot-on.

I made this for my brother-in-law's birthday. We all loved the filling. It was delicious. This cake is huge when it is finished. It is a little hard to eat as is. Thanks for a fun recipe!!

I made this with half-the-fat butter, lowfat cream cheese, lowfat Cool Whip, and made the cake with part applesauce/part oil, and part egg white/part whole eggs. Even with those changes my coworkers devoured this cake in no time! I do think it would be better as a three layer cake -- there was a LOT of filling.
