Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe

Chocolate Cake with Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe

Oreo frosting is one of my favorite things. I cannot justify eating it unless I have something for it to go cake. I love oreo cake because it can be made with very few ingredients or it can be an extravagant recipe. I prefer the simplest version. This oreo cake will soon become you and your family's favorite dessert. Make sure you have a glass of milk nearby, but remember, you can't dunk this cake. So go ahead, grab a pack of America's favorite cookies and turn them into mouth watering cake frosting.

How To Make Oreo Cake Frosting: 3 Oreo Frosting Recipes

Layered Oreo Cake Recipe

Start with a boxed chocolate cake mix baked by package directions. You can also use your own favorite chocolate cake recipe. Make 2 or 3 layers, It's up to you. Next make your favorite oreo cake frosting and spread between layers and the whole outside of the cake.

Here's some favorite Oreo cake frosting recipes. These frosting recipes can be made with any of the special edition Oreo cookies. The candy cane Oreos would make a nice frosting for vanilla cupcakes!

Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe #1

8 oz cream cheese, softened

16 oz powdered sugar

8 oz Cool whip, room temperature

15 Oreos, crushed

1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In mixer, cream the cream cheese and sugar. Add vanilla, mix well, and stir in cool whip. Mix well. Fold in crushed Oreos until well blended.

To add more detail, add additional, chunkier pieces of crushed Oreos to the top of the cake. Or even Oreo cookies cut in halves.

Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe #2

10 oz cream cheese

7 oz mascarpone cheese

2 to 3 Tablespoon icing sugar

15 crushed Oreos

Cream both cheeses and the sugar, mix in the cookies.

You can also use mascarpone cheese only and replace the cream cheese by more mascarpone.

Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe #3

This is a quick fix: make a batch of whipped cream and add your crushed Oreos . Friendly warning: I eat that with a spoon, it rarely makes it to the cake!

Oreo Cake Frosting Recipe #4

Yes I know I said 3 Oreo frosting recipes, but this one is a bonus and technically not a recipe...

If you don't feel like doing it from scratch, you can buy pre-made Oreo frosting . Yes, not has fun, but handy.


Oreo frosting will be great on all sorts of cakes: vanilla and chocolate (obviously) but also strawberry! You can even make this into a pudding pie. So yummy! Big cakes, layered cakes, muffins, pies... it can be used in all sorts of ways.

How To Crush Oreos For Your Oreo Frosting - Crushing is the fun part

If you have kids, they'll enjoy helping you. Just put your Oreos in a bag to avoid having bits and pieces all over the kitchen and have your kid, armed with a rolling pin, crush them. Lots of fun, almost as good as eating Oreo frosting with a spoon...

      I could see my grandson helping out to crush the Oreos lol. I don't know how many would wind up in the frosting but he would sure give it a good go.
