Oreo Birthday Cake

An Oreo Lover’s Dream

Who else loves Oreo cookies? That cookies and cream flavor is always a favorite in our house and this cake is the perfect treat for that Oreo lover in your life. We have used this recipe for birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations, but honestly, do you need a reason to bake an Oreo cake?

For this recipe I have large chunks of Oreos in the batter and a white cake so that you can really see and taste those cookie pieces when biting into a slice of cake. I have had Oreo cakes before that had more of a chocolate base, but I feel that the chocolate overpowers the whole dessert and when I take a bite of Oreo anything, all I want is that cookies and cream goodness!

How to Make Oreo Cake

Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.

Oreo cake mix

Butter the bottom and sides of two 9-inch cake pans and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a stand mixer beat the butter until light and fluffy.

Add the dry ingredients into the butter and incorporate well.

Oreo cake decorating ideas

Add the wet ingredients into the mixer and combine.

Fold in the chopped Oreos by hand.

cookies and cream cake

Divide the mixture evenly into the 2 cake pans and bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

While the Oreo cake is baking, prepare the buttercream. Beat the butter until light and fluffy.

Add in the confectioners sugar, and cream and mix together.

Reserve about 1 ½ cups of the white buttercream separately for decorating the top and piping on the bottom.

Once a portion has been removed add in the finely crushed Oreos to the remainder of the buttercream. This will also change the color of the buttercream to a gray cookies and cream color.

Once the cakes have baked and cooled to room temperature, place one layer of cake onto your stand and add the Oreo buttercream frosting on top, this will be the middle of the cake.

After you add in a layer of buttercream, flip the second layer upside down so that the top of the cake is a smooth flat surface and cover the entire cake with the Oreo Buttercream.

Once the cake is covered in Oreo Buttercream, use the white buttercream that you set aside and pipe 8 evenly spaced dollops of buttercream on the top of the cake. Then add 8 whole Oreos on top of the piped dollops.

NOTES

For the roughly chopped Oreos in the cake better, these should be larger chunks so that when you go to cut the cake you can see the pieces. These should not be finely crushed.
When the cake has cooked fully it will not be golden brown, it will be a light color so be aware of this when baking.
When it comes to the buttercream frosting be sure these Oreo pieces are more finely crushed so that the buttercream will spread easier onto the cake.
