I have had a craving for a light and fluffy cake, but I didn’t know what to make.  Then I asked my son and he said make it taste like Oreos.  Sounds like a plan.  So I decided to create a super simple, super delicious cake. The basis for this cake is a simple box cake mix, but the frosting and Oreos put it over the top.

Oreo Cookie Cake

Oreo Cookie Cake

The firs step is to mix up a dark chocolate or devil’s food cake mix and bake it in two 9 inch pans.

Devil's Food Cake

I recommend lining the pans with parchment so that you can easily remove them.

Cool the cakes

Once cooked let the cakes cool for at least 30 minutes.

The cool whip frosting

While the cakes cools … add 1 box of vanilla instant pudding, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup cold mix to a bowl.  Whisk together.  Then fold in 8 ounces of cool whip.

Whip the frosting

Once the 8 ounces is fully incorporated, gently fold in 8 more ounces.  Yep 16 ounces of cool whip.  Set aside.

 

In a food processor chop up one whole 14.3 oz package of Oreos.  Make sure to pulse until the pieces are all the same size.

Then gently fold all of the crushed Oreo cookies into the whipped frosting.

Fold in the oreosFully incorporated

On a serving platter lined with pieces of parchment, place one of the cake halves onto the platter.  Trim the top to level  it.

Then add 1/3rd of the whipped frosting to the cake.  Level it and then top with the final cake half.

Top the cake

Make sure to trim the top of the cake to make it flat before adding it to the top of the frosting.

Then place the frosting around the edges

Now top the cake with 1/3rd of the frosting and level it.  Then add the remaining 1/3rd around the edge of the cake.  Makes sure to use a spatula to make it smooth.

Surround the cake with the crushed oreos.

Then in a food processor crush 2/3rds of a 14.3 oz package of Oreos.  Then using your hand cover the outside of the cake with the crushed Oreos.  Gently remove the parchment pieces to clear off the excess frosting and crushed Oreos.

Add oreos for garnish

Finally top the cake with the remaining Oreos for garnish.

The perfect oreo cake

Refrigerate the cake until ready to serve.
