Did you all have a good weekend? I sure did! I went down to LA with a friend and she took me on a bakery tour. I can’t wait to tell you guys about it later this week. I saw some pretty amazing flavors and desserts. It gives me some inspiration to get back in the kitchen and get to work.
While I was in Bass Lake this summer, I discovered Birthday Cake Oreos. Umm what? I have been living under a rock? These things are amazing. I knew I wanted to make some sort of dessert with them. So I used them in this Funfetti Poke Cake. What is so amazing about this cake? It is topped with Cake Batter Whipped Cream and Birthday Cake Oreos. This cake is sprinkle overload and I am in love.

- Check your cake for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake. If your toothpick comes out clean, your cake is finished. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- While the cake is still warm, take the end of a wooden spoon or another round object and poke holes all over the top of your cake.

- For the Cake Batter Whipped Cream
- Put the mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer for 15 minutes to get them extra cold. Remove from freeze and attach to mixer.
- Pour heavy whipping cream into mixing bowl and beat on medium speed for five minutes. Add dry cake mix and increase speed to medium high. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
