The cake part 1
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl. Measure the wet ingredients in another bowl.
The cake part 2
Roughly chop the oreos for the cake (the 300 grams). You can also put them in a food processor and pulse a couple of times. Add this to the cake batter and mix well.
The cake part 3
Evenly divide the cake batter between the 3 cake tins. I just scoop a large spoonful at a time in the tins but you can also weigh it to be more precise.
Buttercream part 1
While the cakes are cooling off you can prepare the buttercream.
Buttercream part 2
Gradually add the powdered sugar. Every time you add in the sugar, start your mixer slowly at first so it doesn't create a huge cloud. Once the sugar is incorporated you can put the mixer on a higher setting. Also scrape down the sides every so often. Do this until all of the sugar is used. Then add in the vegan heavy cream replacement. Whisk again until combined. Then add in the pulverised oreos and mix until the oreos are fully incorporated.
In a saucepan over low heat, add in the vegan heavy cream. Then add in the chopped up vegan chocolate and mix until the chocolate is melted completely. The ganache should be warm and easy to pour when you're going to assemble the cake.
Assembling the cake part 1
Start with the bottom of the cake. Evenly spread a layer of the buttercream on the first cake. Then a small layer of the ganache. Repeat with the next layer of cake, buttercream, and ganache. And then add on the last cake. Spread buttercream all over the top and sides of the cake in an even layer. Use a bench scraper and a palette knife to smooth out the buttercream.
Assembling the cake part 2
Once you have the buttercream in an even layer, add pulverised oreos to the bottom of the cake.
