Cookies n' Cream Torte

I tend to leave the cake MAKING to the experts, I just do the BAKING. It's so hard to make a cake from scratch and make it taste moist.(If you've got a secret, please share). As for me and Betty Crocker, we have our own secret. I was in a jam about what to make for a dessert to bring to a friends house for dinner. I scanned the Betty Crocker website and found a winner.

1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist devil's food cake mix
8 Oreo's crushed
1 container Betty Crocker Whipped fluffy white frosting
8 Oreo's cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease and lightly flour or spray. Make cake batter as directed on box. Pour into pan.
2. Bake 30 min. or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour. I stuck it in the freezer to speed it up and make it more firm.
3. Fold crushed cookies into frosting. Put a cookie sheet on top of your cake pan and flip the cake out. Cut the cake crosswise in half. Gently place the other half aside. Spread cake with half of the frosting mixture.
4. Put the other half on and spread the remaining frosting. Spread the Oreo's on top as a garnish before you serve it.
This comes out really moist and is just as good two days later, just keep it in the fridge.
