This Mint Oreo Cake looks like a package of Oreos exploded all over it, and if that doesn’t sound delicious to you, I don’t know how to help you.

Craving Oreos

I can’t even tell you how many recipes I’ve created off a craving. 

When I created this Mint Oreo Cake, I was craving a piece of Asphalt Pie from Wingers.

I was also pregnant. With twins.

Asphalt Pie is an ice cream pie with an oreo cookie crust filled with mint chip ice cream and then covered with more oreos, caramel sauce and whipped cream.  

I know. It’s so good.

But unless you live in Utah, Nevada or Idaho you won’t be able to get yourself a slice. 

Why Isn’t This an Ice Cream Cake Then?

Because that would be too easy! And this was my birthday cake, and I wanted something big and fancy with tons of layers.

Can I Make this Cake White Instead of Yellow? 

Yes. If you want yellow cake like I did, use only the egg yolks. 

If you want white cake instead, use only the egg whites. 

Can I Use Mint Oreos?

You want double mint for double the fun?

Oh my goodness, go for it!! Your dedication is awesome!

My Favorite Cake Making Supplies on Amazon

I am an Amazon affiliate and Amazon sometimes pays me an incredibly small stipend from the sale of these items, and it does not cost you anything to click on them!

My favorite heavy duty 9″ cake pans. You should have at least 3 on hand, 5 would be better.

A cheap hand mixer is essential! I love using it quickly for frostings, or cookies. It’s great especially when you’ve got cake in a stand mixer, but you’ve still got to whip up some egg whites.

Big, sturdy wire racks for inverting and cooling cakes! These make it nice and easy!

  1. All I can say is holy cake! (Actually, holy crap came to mind first…) That is some serious cake and it has me jonesing for a slice. Not sure I'm brave enough to attempt it, but maybe after I throw back a few Diet Cokes I'll have the gumption. YUM! And Happy Birthday to YOU!

  2. You've got to be kidding me! I've seen some cake in my time – but this one, THIS ONE, tops them all! Happy Birthday to you and Happy New Year (sans resolutions)! 🙂 You're amazing! (and so is Gabe for being such a sweet husband)

  3. That is one seriously awesome cake! Sounds like your bad luck with Winger's turned into really, really good luck for everyone who got a piece of that art work. Happy birthday!!!

  4. What a treat finding this blog! The New York Times had an article on layered cakes a few weeks ago…omg those cakes are nothing compared to this! And mint? MMMMM! Enjoy your birthday! Cheers!
