So we found out late last week that the hubs’ citizenship has been approved! Yay! Now we are just waiting to find out when his ceremony date, which I like to call his graduation, will be. Then we can celebrate!

We did little celebrating for another reason this weekend. We went to Charlotte to celebrate the birthday of one of the hubs’ college friends. They lived together for about 3 years in college and played college tennis together. Another one of their old teammates was there as well. It was a lot of fun and great to see everyone.

What’s funny is that since the hubs and I have been together since high school, most of our friends have known both of us for the same length of time. There was a lot of reminiscing and all kinds of stories being told, and not only have I heard them all so many times, but for many of them I was actually there. It’s kind of fun that we have that history together.

Of course that also means I had to live through plenty of gross boy-ness. Boys in college, at least these boys, were not the cleanest ever. I literally never walked around barefoot in any of their apartments. Ever. Have you ever felt sticky carpet? You don’t want to. Those are the moments you wish you weren’t there for.

Have you ever seen the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding? You know how the dad always says to put windex on everything to fix it? Well, they took it a little too literal once and mopped their carpet with windex. No joke.

I’m convinced that if the hubs still lived with other guys, it wouldn’t be much different now. Thank goodness he has me. Not only do I clean, I also make a lot of dessert. He gets a pretty good deal. 😉

And this particular dessert was a winner. Once of my taste testers described it as “banana pudding that got dressed up and had a party.” A pretty hilarious description, but I actually find it kind of accurate. It’s hard to describe what an icebox cake is like in terms of texture, but comparing it to banana pudding totally works.

The Oreos take the place of the nilla wafers. The cake batter flavored pudding takes the place of the banana pudding. And then there’s whipped cream. And I know some people aren’t big fans of bananas (crazy!), so you don’t have to deal with them in this. It really is a party in a pan.

The party is in every layer too. You could use regular golden or chocolate oreos, but I absolutely recommend using the birthday cake flavored Oreos. They are life changing. And they add more cake batter flavor, so yea. Win.

For the pudding layers, I used vanilla pudding that I added dry cake mix to. I used Funfetti cake mix, obviously. But you could use regular vanilla cake mix as well. The cake mix is also used in the whipped cream. Like I said, a party in every layer. 🙂

I really do love icebox cakes. I love that they’re no bake and the flavor can easily be changed up. I’ve made several of them (mint oreo icebox cake, strawberry and blueberry cheesecake icebox cake, banana split icebox cake, chocolate icebox cake) and they’re always a hit. You definitely should try this Funfetti Birthday Cake version. It rocks!

    Hi Lindsay,
    I read and re-read the recipe for Funfetti Birthday Cake Ice Box Cake and am a little confused as to the directions. In the first part of the recipe whipped cream is mentioned as one of the ingredients to make Cake Batter Whipped Cream. Then the recipe directions in Steps # 3 & #4 say to use Whipped Cream. Then Steps # 8, #9, & #11 mention using Cool Whip.
    Please advise if Cool Whip is one of the ingredients left out of recipe, or to use the Whipped Cream for the entire layering of this dessert. Would love to try it. It looks fantastic.
    Thank You, Linda Miller

      Hi Linda! Thanks for pointing out the error. There’s no Cool Whip in the recipe, it’s just the homemade whipped cream. It’s been updated to reflect that.
