This is a big hit for any occasion. To make it fun you can put it in a terra cotta pot and add gummy worms and candy flowers for the "dirt effect". Also make individual cups for kids for fun as well.

How to Make Dirt Cake


  • 1In a small bowl cream together butter and cream cheese. Once creamy add powdered sugar. Mix well then set aside.
  • 2In a large bowl combine vanilla pudding, milk, and vanilla. Then add cream cheese mixture. Once mixed really good fold in whipped topping until your mix is smooth and creamy.
  • 3Now you can start layering. Start with cream/pudding mix,then crushed oreo, and so forth. Make sure you end with oreos on top. I mormally use a 9x13 pan with only 2 layers. There are many options to use as far as pans are concerned.
  • 4Once completed refrigerate for a couple of hours. Can also be made ahead or overnite. Enjoy!!!!

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
