Cake in a jar (5 min Oreo cake recipe)


Birthdays are always super exciting. I am like a little child when my birthday comes. I would shout out “ITS MY BIRTHDAY” all day if I could. Is it mid life crisis. Naah. It’s just the child in me who loves it.


I love planning surprises for other people’s birthday and just wait to see the expression on their face when they see it. I have recently in the past few months started baking a little but still so much to learn. Wanted to try something different as a birthday surprise but didn’t have any time.


Made a quick 5 min Oreo cake, infused it with cognac. Then layered it with fresh strawberries and topped with a white chocolate ganache mixed with crushed cookies. Presenting CAKE IN A JAR
