Cookies and Cream Cake

Another one of my favorite combinations is cookies and cream. Any bite of this combo whether it’s in ice cream, a cookie or in today’s case, dedicating a whole cake to this marvelous combo! Adding the larger chunks of Oreo between layers of cake and also in the batter before baking will give you the creaminess and texture you’ve been waiting for. There are so many ways to decorate this cake that will let your guests know exactly what treat they’re in for. Whole Oreos, crushed Oreos and white chocolate chips will do the trick! With so many varieties of Oreos, this cake can be themed so many different ways!

Cookies and Cream Cake

Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 23-28 minutes
Serves 16

Cake

  • 1 box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped Oreos

Frosting

  • 1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk
  • ½ cup Oreos, finely crushed 

Toppings

  • Oreos, whole and crushed
  • White chocolate chips

 Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour two 9-inch round pans and set aside. In a large bowl with a handheld mixer, combine all cake ingredients except crushed Oreos. Mix until smooth and incorporated; about 2 minutes. Gently fold in crushed Oreos. Fill each prepared pan evenly with batter and bake for 23-28 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely. 
  2. Meanwhile, make the frosting. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix cream cheese and butter together until incorporated and fluffy; about 3 minutes. Slowly add the powdered sugar until incorporated. Finally, add remaining ingredients* and beat until light and fluffy; about 3 minutes.
  3. Once cakes have cooled, place one in the center of your cake stand and top with a thin layer of frosting. Add additional coarsely crushed Oreos on top for texture. Top with second cake. Frost top and sides of cake.
  4. If using the reserved white frosting, pipe small shapes along the top edges of the cake. Line the base with crushed Oreos and Oreo pieces. Top the cake with whole Oreos and white chocolate chips. You can also melt some of the white chocolate chips and dip the Oreos or drizzle chocolate on top for more variety. 

Tips

*If you want to top the cake with white frosting dollops, reserve a small amount of frosting before adding the finely crushed Oreos.

Enjoy!
