      This is a beautiful cake. I give it four stars because it really did look so nice. That said, if I made it again, I would only use parts of the recipe. The crust was great. I liked it as a unique thing that made the cake special. The cake part didn't turn out so well. I had to cook it about 45 minutes to get it done, then it turned out to be too dense. I didn't see much difference between the filling and the frosting, so I just made the frosting to use for everything. Next time, I would not use the oreo crumbs in the cake. I'd just make a white cake with the cookie crust. I made this for my daughter's 11th birthday party and got lots of compliments on its appearance. Thanks for a great idea!

      This is my first review despite trying hundreds of recipes on this site. This cake is amazing. It is one of the most labor intensive desserts I've ever made, but it was worth it. I wanted to make my step-daughter something special for her birthday. I found this recipe while thinking about the fact that she loves Oreos. This cake was unbelievable - extremely rich, but sooooo good!
