No-Bake Oreo Cake - lovely

I like to make things that taste good. But I love to make things that taste good with little or no effort at all. This cake doesn't actually require any real cooking or baking, just a trip to the store and a bit of cutting & mixing and a rest in the fridge and voila! You are done!

You need 5 ingredients:
500 grams mascarpone cheese (cream cheese if you can't find any)
small Madeira cake (or any other sponge cake about 250 grams/9oz)
about 15 Oreo cookies
150 grams icing sugar (confectioner's sugar in US)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1. Place the Oreo cookies in a plastic seal-able bag and beat on them with a wooden spoon or crush them using a roller until the cookies resemble fine pieces of sand.  

2. Using a hand mixer, beat the mascarpone cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth & fluffy. Set aside. 

3. Add the crushed Oreo cookies to the above mixture and mix well with a spoon. 

4. Cut the sponge cake into finger sized pieces. Line a cake pan or plastic bowl with cling film. 

5. Layer 1/3 of the sponge pieces onto the bottom on the bowl. Add 1/3 of the Oreo-cheese mixture. Do this two more times until you have used all the sponge and mixture. 

6. Cover the top with cling film and gently pat down with your hands to make sure there are no pockets. 

7. Let sit in fridge overnight, or at least 5 hours. 

8. Enjoy!
