i got a phone call for an oreo cake. I have so much going on this weekend so i told her it will have to be a box mix cake, she said fine as long as it can still be the flavor he wants. So can i add crushed oreos to a yellowcake mix? Its going in to the ball pan. should i toss the cookies with flour first?

Personally I would use a white mix. Yes, crush the oreos but not fine. You want chunks not crumbs.
Instead of flour toss them in the dry cake mix.

I have a recipe for cookies and cream cupcakes that would make a fabulous cake and it uses a box mix (I got the recipe from Bake & Destroy website); here it is:

makes 24 cupcakes/350 degree oven

* 30 Oreo (or Oreo-like)
* 1 pkg plain white cake mix
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 3 large eggs
* 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your over to
350 and line two cupcake pans with paper liners. Count out
12 Oreos and separate the top and bottom wafers. Make sure each half has some
icing on it. (I found this step to be a bitch.) Place one wafer, icing side up,
in the bottom of each paper liner. Crush the remaining Oreos by any means you

Place the cake mix, oil, sour cream, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl
and blend with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides
and beat again on medium about 1.5 minutes more. Measure out 1 1/2 cups crushed
Oreos and fold these into the batter. Set the rest of the crumbs aside for

Fill your liners 3/4 full with batter
and place the pans int he oven. A little
trick if you get fewer than 2 dozen cupcakes out of this, take the liners out of
the empty cups and fill them about half way with
water. This helps the cakes
bake evenly despite the pan not being filled with batter.

Bake the cupcakes for about 18-20 minutes until they are golden and spring back
when lightly touched with your finger. Cool in the pan on wire racks for about 5
minutes and then remove cakes from pans and cool completely on wire racks.

Combine remaining crumbs into basic buttercream & frost cupcakes.

Basic Buttercream

2 stick of unsalted butter (1 cup), room temp
4 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup milk or heavy cream
pinch of salt
2 tsp vanilla

Cream butter & icing sugar in mixer on low, add pinch of salt &
vanilla..combine well. Slowly add milk & continue to whip until spreading

An easy way to seperate the oreos is to use a cakecutter it looks like a hacksaw with a wire and just cut through the icing.

i just roughly chop the oreos and toss them in a white cake mix. they don't sink so i don't toss in flour or anything else.
