Cookies and Cream Cake

Posted on

Who wouldn’t love a cookies and cream cake made with Oreos and chocolate cake? This delightful treat combines layers of moist chocolate cake with creamy cookies and cream icing. The icing, made with cream cheese and Oreo cookie pieces, adds a delicious twist to the classic chocolate cake.

Our chocolate cake recipe is a favorite because it’s not overly sweet, thanks to unsweetened cocoa powder. Instead, it’s perfectly moist and velvety, with a hint of richness from the buttermilk. Paired with the cream cheese icing, which is also less sweet than traditional buttercream, it creates an irresistible combination that’s hard to resist.

This cake is perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a birthday celebration or just a special treat to indulge in. You don’t need an excuse to enjoy a delicious slice of cake!
