    • Prepare 6 inch cake pans with parchment paper circles in the bottom, and grease the sides.
    • Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
    • Then, add gradually the liquid ingredients one by one.
    • Divide batter between 6 cakes pans and bake at 180 degrees for about 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
    • Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely.

    Make the cream :

    • Beat together Whipping cream and sugar powder.
    • Add mascarpone and Oreo crumbs and mix until smooth.
    • Once cream is ready and cake is cool, place the first layer of cake on cake plate.
    • Spread 1/2 of the the cream on top in an even layer.
    • Keep on this way until you add final layer of cake on top and frost the outside of the cake with remaining frosting.

    For the chocolate ganache :

    • Add the chocolate chips to a medium sized bowl.
    • Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
    • Now, drizzle the chocolate ganache around the edge of the cake ( like it is shown on the video bellow), then pour the remainder of the ganache on top of the cake and spread evenly.
    • Decorate the cake with Oreos if desired, then serve. Cake is best when well covered for 3-4 days.
