“From scratch cookies n cream cake! Moist and fluffy white cake with crushed Oreos and frosted with homemade cookies n cream buttercream frosting. Easy, crowd pleasing recipe”

As a child, I’d ALWAYS get cookies n cream blizzards whenever my mother took us to Dairy Queen. Going to Dairy Queen was saved only for summer vacation so it was kinda a big deal. It clearly didn’t take much to please us kids lol.

As simple as cookies and cream is, (vanilla ice cream and crushed Oreos) there is just something irresistible about anything cookies n cream. And clearly lots of other people share my fascination!

It’s been years since I made this cookies n cream cake but I’ve been in such a baking mood lately. Which is really rare because normally I hate being in my kitchen when it’s so pretty outside.

My honey bunch has been doing so much work outdoors to get the house in tip top shape for my huge 4th of July party I’m having.

He definitely deserved a treat and thankfully he’s easy like me, give us food and we’re happy. This cookies n cream cake is definitely a treat!!! You don’t want to be caught home alone with this thing. Trust me. Make it, have a slice and give the rest the neighbors or coworkers. You hear me?

The simple white cake base is perfect for making cookies n cream cake! When I first made this cake I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go with a sour cream cake, cream cheese cake, or white cake.

I’m glad I went with a white cake recipe. It’s simple, easy, light and went great with this  cookies and cream buttercream frosting and vanilla ice cream!

Feel free to up the ante when it comes to the Oreos! I prefer my cake and frosting to be white and lightly speckled with bits of cookie pieces so I didn’t add in too many crushed cookies.

I also didn’t want my cake or icing to have a brown tint. Sometimes when you add in too many cookies it will begin to turn the white frosting and cake a light brown.

Totally not a bad problem though if you ask me! : )
