For the chocolate cake, we used this delicious cake recipe from Epicurious. We used the cake recipe almost exactly as stated except my kids do not like coffee so we substituted hot water for the hot brewed coffee.

The Cookies and Cream buttercream frosting recipe is our “Heavenly Buttercream” with 15 crushed oreos mixed in at the end.
