Someone in my family recently asked for a trifle for their birthday. I asked what kind–there are so many! They thought about a Funfetti/birthday cake flavor, but they also really love Oreos. I googled around and couldn’t find anything quite like what they were looking for, so I decided to use my previous trifle experience and cobbled together my own recipe that I call an Oreo Birthday Cake Trifle!
This has layers of pudding, birthday cake, Oreos, and a cream cheese Oreo whipped cream that is out of this world. You can mix this up by using a different kind of cake mix or by using different Oreo flavors, but I promise you that this version does not disappoint!
Oreo Birthday Cake Trifle Recipe
You can make the cake with a Funfetti cake mix, but I couldn’t find one at the store so I opted for a white cake mix and I added my own sprinkles.
This mix called for adding oil, water, and eggs.
Mix it up according to the box and then add your own sprinkles!
I like to cook this in a 9×13 cake pan because it is easy to cut it into equally sized cubes.
While the cake bakes and cools, mix up the pudding and place it in the fridge to set.
Now you’re making the whipped cream! You’ll whip up cold cream cheese until it’s smooth, then add powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy cream. This is the consistency you want the whipped cream to be at. It should be stiff with peaks in it — you should be able to try a spoonful (which I recommend) and it hold its shape.
Now it’s time to assemble the trifle. You’ll need your cake cut into cubes, your pudding, your Oreo whipped cream, whole Oreos, and your sprinkles. First place half the cake cubes in the bottom of the trifle dish and top with half the pudding.
Then add Oreos on top — I spread them out but you could use more.
Now top the Oreos with about half the whipped cream.
Spread it out into an even layer.
Now top with the rest of the cake cubes.
Then top with the rest of the pudding and more whole Oreos.
Now finish it off with an even layer of the rest of the whipped cream.
You can decorate the top however you’d like — I chose to use some more whole Oreos and the rest of the sprinkles I had!
You can see all the delicious layers if you look at the side.
You can eat this right away, but it works best if you can let it sit in the fridge for at least a few hours or even overnight. But I promise — this will be requested again!
