My Grandson Johnathan asked for a Oreo Cake for his eighth birthday. This is what he got. It sure was good and it was beautiful. It was even better than I thought it would be.

How to Make Oreo Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1CAKE:
    Preheat your oven to 350*.
  • 2Prepare 2 greased and floured 9" cake pans.
  • 3Mix cake per directions on box using all ingredients listed under Cake.. except the Oreos.
  • 4Divide the batter evenly between the pans.Bake for approximately 25- 28 minutes or done.
  • 5Cool on rack till completely cool so it won't melt your Cool Whip.
  • 6FROSTING:
    Melt and cool the stick of butter.
  • 7Add Vanilla to cooled butter and stir in Cool Whip. The butter will thicken the mixture to Frosting consistency. Set it aside.
  • 8In a separate bowl break up enough of the Oreo cookies to spread between your cake layers. Make them pretty big pieces. I used 10 cookies. Use the whole cookie. Filling and all. Set it aside.
  • 9In another bowl. Use the whole cookie, filling and all. Blend or process 6-8 cookies to crumbs so you can decorate the sides of your frosted cake. It won't take a lot. Set it aside.
  • 10TO ASSEMBLE THE CAKE:
    Place 1 cake layer on the serving plate and spread with a large dollop of the cool whip Frosting. Use plenty and sprinkle broken cookie pieces on top of the cool whip.
  • 11Add the top layer and frost top and sides with the remaining cool whip frosting. Save enough to fill a small piping bag if you are going to decorate the top with rosettes.
  • 12I used a # 32 Wilton star tip on my bag.
  • 13I cut cookies in half to decorate the top of cake. To keep them from breaking so badly I separated each cookie and cut them in half with a very sharp knife. Then put the halves back together and stuck each half in a rosette of frosting.
  • 14Hold the plate at an angle over the container of crumbs and sprinkle as much as you want on sides of cake.
