Food and Fiction: Simon Vs. the Oreo Cake


Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda | Chocolate Oreo Cake

In Becky Albertalli’s novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the main character Simon is obsessed with Oreos. It is his favorite snack and he loves to talk about them with his crush, Blue. So when I decided to make an Oreo Cake, I had to relate it back to this heartwarming novel. 

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.

Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.

Chocolate Oreo Cake

I think this is my favorite Food and Fiction recipe that I’ve created in a while. This chocolate cake is GIGANTIC because it is three-tiered and filled to the brim with Oreo frosting in between each layer.

It is the perfect amount of sweetness and deliciousness, and I cannot get enough of this cake that I offer to everyone who visits my house. It does take a while to prepare considering it’s such a large dessert, but it is so worth it. The steps of this recipe are easy to follow and I highly recommend everyone try it out! Everyone adores it and I will definitely be using this recipe again in the future for parties.
