If you love Oreo cookies (and who doesn't?), you'll love this cake. I've made this many times for more than 15 years, because it's always been a crowd pleaser. I make it as a layer cake, using 2 eggs rather than 3 egg whites--this makes for a more moist cake, and there's no waste of yolks. I cover the sides of the cake completely with additional crushed Oreos and stand more cookies, cut in half, upright along the top edge. I make the frosting a little differently, mostly to ensure an ample amount for a layer cake: 4 c. powdered sugar, 1/2 c. shortening, 1/4 c. milk and 1 tsp. vanilla. This is a great go-to recipe when you need a cake that's beautiful, easy, and delicious!


Love the concept and so did our neighbor's two little kids (not to mention my husband)! I couldn't bring myself to do a boxed cake so I used the recipe for "Simple White Cake" from this site and am so glad I did because it tastes just like a big sugar cookie and for the icing I used "White Cake Frosting II" from this site. I will definitely make this again.


I used the idea of the cushed oreo cookie in this but I used the recipe from this site that is called cream cake. It is wonderful on it's own but with the addition of the was fantastic! After it cooled...I also melted about a cup of giradelli chocolate chips with a little bit of cream and drizzled it on top. If you do not add too much cream...after a while...the chocolate hardens almost like candy on the cake which makes it extra yummy. Sorry but I just could not use this recipe with the box cake mix because no matter what you put in know that it started from a box. Try the cake the way I mentioned and I can will not be dissapointed.
