Don’t be deterred by the apparently long cooking time for this cake. It’s really just a 10 to 20 minutes undertaking, tops. The rest is refrigerating time. It all comes down to making two mixtures and candying orange slices. The first mixture is Oreos with dark chocolate and the other one a milk chocolate and heavy cream blend.
