Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake

Not only do I have an awesome Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake to share with you today, but I’ve also got a wonderful giveaway going on to celebrate my friend Carrian’s birthday! What a great way to celebrate – with this delicious cake and an awesome giveaway for a Microsoft Surface! Yay!

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake

So how was your Easter weekend? I hope it was awesome! We had my mother and sister-in-law in town and had a nice, relaxing weekend.

It might have been the first weekend in…well, I don’t know how long, that I didn’t do blog baking. Just baked and cooked for our Easter meal.

It was kind of nice. I love baking for the blog, but I totally messed up the pie crust for my Strawberry Cream Pie. And when normally I’d have been frustrated because I’d have to redo it, it was nice to just not care. It might not have looked great, but we still inhaled it. SO good.

We went and saw “Heaven is for real” in theaters. Not bad, but as usual, the book is better. I also think it had more detail about Colton’s experience than the movie showed.

We went to church and the hubs helped out with the 2 year olds that I volunteer with. He got to see what that was all about. Apparently, it’s much easier than having 20 kids on a tennis court. Maybe I should join him one day to see? ;)

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake

So since it’s been a while since I shared a cookie cake, I figured it was time.

I grew up on all kinds of cake – regular cake, ice cream cake, cookie cakes. My dad was always the cookie cake guy and I loved them all. I had a solid rotation for my birthdays.

Now, I love making fun variations. There’s all kinds of cake and ice cream cake variations you can buy and make, but there really aren’t a variety of cookie cakes. *sad face*

They are delicious – and easy to make – so I have started my own little collection. Some of previous faves are the Funfetti Cookie Cake and Reeses Peanut Butter Cookie Cake – yum! And even though they aren’t as fancy as a regular cake, you can totally dress them up.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake

Like this Oreo Cookies and Cream Cookie Cake, for example.

It’s just full of crushed Oreos. Then it’s topped with Oreo icing, more Oreos and drizzled with chocolate. All dressed up for a party in my belly. :)

And every one likes cookies, right? How can you go wrong?

    Happy Birthday Carrian I truly hope that all of your birthday wishes become a reality in this birthday year. Thanks for the give aways and continue your awesome post.

  2. Looks sinful!

  3. Lindsay, that oreo cookies and cream cookie cake looks absolutely AMAZING!!! We went to the theatre to see “Heaven is for Real” this weekend too and I totally agree with you. The book was so much better and what you said about the movie not focusing in enough detail on Colton’s experience is exactly what we said. The movie was still really good but I definitely feel like they left out a lot of significant details. Anyway, I hope you had a very happy Easter! :)
