Oreo Pound Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing <- want for my next birthday!

When you are a dessert blogger AND have run your own bakery, the expectations for birthday desserts are exponential. Not only that, but I always want to top the previous year’s birthday dessert with something new and better. Combine that with the fact that Matt actually baked for my birthday this year and last, his birthday dessert had to be pretty epic.

Holy CAKE - Oreo Pound Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Luckily, this cake is epic. I took an always successful cream cheese pound cake and loaded it up with oreos and baked it in layers to make way for some extra perfect chocolate cream cheese icing. This cake is no joke. The amount of butter and cream cheese used is pretty shameful, but it is completely worth it. In fact, Matt wouldn’t even share the leftovers with anyone (except me, phew!) and my father-in-law requested a re-make for his birthday as well.

Oreo Pound Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing - now everyone requests this cake!

I promise, if you bake this it will not disappoint!
