Dirt Cake

I wanted to bake the perfect cake for my son's 2nd birthday without putting him into insulin shock. He likes all the things that little boys do like worms, horses, dirt and especially tractors. So I can up with my own version of Dirt Cake for him. He LOVED it!!


Cake:
1 Betty Crocker SuperMoist Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

Pudding:
1 package Chocolate Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix (153g / 6 serving)
3 cups cold milk

Topping:
1/2 box Oreo Baking Crumbs (200g)

- Prepare pudding as per directions on box, set aside in fridge. If you like a firmer, creamier pudding use heavy or whipping cream instead of  milk.
- Bake cake as per directions on box, in 9x13 pan.
- Once cake has cooled, cover with pudding and sprinkle Oreo crumbs on top.
- Optional: decorate with gummy worms.

  2. That's awesome. I want to make a litter box cake for my daughter's birthday, just to shake things up a bit. So far my husband has nixed it, but we'll see next year. :)

  7. I think any little boy would love a dirt cake! Although, I think any little girl would love one, too. This looks so yummy, I seriously can't resist anything made with Oreo crumbs.
