Oreo & Cream Cake: A Layered Delight Perfect for Any Occasion!

Hello, fellow bakers! Today, we're going to make a delightful Cookies & Cream Cake. This cake is a fun twist on the classic ice cream flavor, packed with layers of cookies and cream. Let's get started!


Here's what you'll need:

  • 12cm diameter round-shaped mold (bottomed)
  • 18 pieces of Oreo
  • 60g melted butter (unsalted)
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 100cc fresh cream
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 3g powdered gelatin

Preparation Steps

1. Bring the Cream Cheese to Room Temperature: Start by letting the cream cheese come to room temperature.

2. Soften Gelatin: In a heat-resistant container, add water and powdered gelatin to soften.

3. Line the Mold: Line the mold with parchment paper.

4. Crush Oreos: Place 15 Oreos in a plastic bag, crush them finely, add melted butter, and mix well (cookie dough).

5. Whisk Cream: Place the cream in a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.

6. Melt Gelatin: Heat the softened gelatin in a 600W microwave for 10 to 20 seconds to melt it.

7. Combine Ingredients: In a separate bowl, mix the cream cheese until smooth, then add the sugar and mix until fluffy. Add the gelatin from step 6 and mix, then add the fresh cream from step 5 and mix in a cutting motion (cheese cream).

8. Layer the Cake: Pour 1/3 of the cookie dough into the mold, spread it out with a spoon, then add 1/3 of the cheese cream and level it out. Repeat the same way for the remaining 3 times.

9. Top with Oreos: Split 3 Oreos and place on top. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Garnish with mint if desired.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I use different cookies instead of Oreos? Yes, you can use any type of cookies you like. Just ensure they are ground into a fine crumble.

2. What if I don't have a round-shaped mold? No problem! You can use a rectangular or square mold, just remember to cut the cake into squares for presentation.

3. Can I freeze the cake after making it? Absolutely! Just pop it into the freezer for a couple of hours before serving.

4. Is it okay to eat the cake straight from the mold? Technically yes, but it's generally better to let it cool before cutting it. The frosting is meant to be enjoyed while the cake is still warm.

5. How long can I keep the cake in the fridge? The cake can last for a week or so in the fridge. After that, it might start to become too firm.
