One Big Oreo Cookie

I saw this cake pan on this blog and fell in love with it. I've been debating on whether to get it or not because I'm concerned what type of frosting would hold up the weight of the top layer ? Frosting is not my specialty, so if anyone knows what type of frosting would work best I may splurge and get it.
What a hit this would make with the kids and adults.....It's so darn cute!

I don't know what kind of cake you are going to use to make this, but am guessing a denser pound cake type recipe (since these hold up well in molds.) So yes, it would probably be kind of heavy. So, I'd probably use some kind of support structure "inside" the cake...kind of what you'd use to support a tiered cake. Use cake boards under each layer, and drive wooden dowels, or fat plastic straws, or Wilton plastic pillars through the bottom layer (and frosting) cutting them flush with the top of the frosting layer. Then place the top tier (which would be on a cardboard cake board) on the supports and frosting layer, and do a frosting touch-up around the sides. (Just make sure you tell people not to eat the wood or plastic inside the cake.)

Personally, I love a tasty swiss buttercream. Your other option is a stiffer sugar icing with the milk/water/10X sugar mixture.

Oh, and my other cake-unmolding trick is the use Crisco shortening on a paper towel to coat the inside of the pan, and then lightly dust with flour, or maybe cocoa in this case, tapping out the excess to avoid extra adhering to the surface of your cake.

I definitely want to see your results!! Good luck! Abbie
