This Is Important

by Mandy Weger on August 23, 2011

Guys, I am in a serious pickle here.

My birthday is this Thursday and I’m celebrating by making myself an awesome, amazing, no-holds barred cake or dessert that’s so good I immediately fall into a sugar coma.

What should I make?

A fudgy, dense chocolate cake? (via Foodess)

Should I stick with a favorite stand-by: Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes? (via Handle the Heat)

Should I do a combo of the two and make Oreo Cupcakes (via Budding Baketress) (they have an oreo on the bottom of the cupcake, fyi)

Layered Oreo Crunch Bars (via How Sweet Eats)

Or do the Motherload of cookie layer bars (probably adding in some oreos myself because it’s my birthday and I freakin’ NEVER allow myself to buy them) (via Picky-Palate)

This is a super-tough decision. Whatever I end up doing, I will probably end up consuming a box of double-stuff oreos while I cook. Because I’ll be able to on my birthday. And it won’t count because calories aren’t counted on your birthday.

What delicious dessert would you make out of the above?

    I want ALL OF THESE THINGS. Related: Have you ever made the oreo filling? http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/05/my-kingdom-for-a-glass-of-milk/  (I don’t think the cookies taste quite right but that filling is CLOSE. Too close. Dangerously close!)

    That does sound dangerous! I might want to try it though…just because I live on the edge like that. ;)

    The Oreo cheesecake cupcakes do look amazing. But that last cake looks oh-so-decadent and delicious!

    Uhmmm, I would make all of them! That was an option, wasn’t it?? The last one looks divine, especially if you add Oreos to the peanut butter. The Oreo-cheesecake is tempting me simply because it looks like the white fudge Oreos I so adore.

    You should make macarons too. (I’m the devil, I know.)

    Haha you ARE the devil! I got some macarons at the farmer’s market on Sunday to satisfy my pre-birthday cravings though. If they’re still super strong after my birthday, I might just have to get another few at the farmer’s market this upcoming sunday!

    If you’ve already made the oreo cheesecake cupcakes, I’d say go with the layered oreo crunch bars. There have been a lot of Oreo-based desserts floating around the interwebs I’ve noticed lately. Definitely has me craving Oreos!

    Oreos galore! You’re speaking right to a girl’s heart!! I vote for the Oreo layered crunch bars!

    Personally the dense fudgy chocolate cake could probably bring me to my knees. But if you are diehard for oreos I’m thinking adding some to the Motherload of Cookie Layer Bars would be divine.

    OMG those all look amazing. I vote either the oreo cupcakes or the crazy layer brownies. And now I’m hungry just thinking about it!
