Learn how to make dirt cake. This homemade dirt cake recipe can be divided into 3 different flower pots or one large one. It's up to you.
Lline them with saran wrap or foil before filling them. You can use different things instead of a flower too. The list is endless. More of my favorite homemade cake recipes at the bottom of the page...
Recipe for Dirt Cake
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
3 TBS butter, softened
2 (3.5oz) pkgs instant vanilla pudding mix
3-1/2 cups milk
4 cups homemade whipped cream, recipe below
32 oz Oreo cookies
Chop cookies in a blender until fine.
Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar in bowl. In a large bowl mix milk and pudding together until thick and then add whipped topping. Combine pudding mixture and cream mixture together.
Dunk Oreos in milk and layer on the bottom of the flower pot. Then add the whipped cream mixture; repeating layers. Place a fake flower in the center of the flower pot with a trowel. You may add gummy worms to the layers if you wish. Chill until ready to serve.
NOTE: For pool and beach theme parties, use the opposite. Vanilla cookies and chocolate pudding to make it look like sand. I use shells on top, (you can buy in any craft store) in a sand bucket with a shovel.
HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM
