Dirt Cake


The title isn’t very appetizing but this cake is fantastic and is easy to throw together.  The components are simple – cake, pudding and Oreos.

I did this cake for a local groundbreaking ceremony at SolTrans in Vallejo.  The large decorative cake was done in a large terra cotta pot while the servings for the public were done in small cups similar those you would find on a buffet.


Dirt Cake

Chocolate cake, made from scratch or from a box
Pudding, prepared and chilled (I’m using vanilla today
Oreo cookies

Prepare cake and pudding according to instructions.  Using your food processor, pulse the Oreos into fine crumbs until it resembles dirt.

Crumble up the cake into crumbs.

In a Pyrex baking dish or torte dish, place cake crumbs on the bottom of the dish.  Dollop on a thick layer of pudding and smooth out with a spatula.  Top pudding with a generous layer of Oreo cookie crumbs.  Decorate with shovels, construction equipment and gummy worms.

Eat Well!
