Dirt Cake

dirtDirt Cake

This cake is immensely popular with the boys we teach. We are doing a construction themed VBS this year and I plan on serving it at least once. This recipe, besides being ‘to die for’, is lots of fun. If you need an attractive dessert, make it up in a large, fancy glass bowl. Or use a flower pot and top with artificial flowers and gummy worms. For a men’s Banquet, or get you some toy dump trucks and use it at VBS or a kids party. I made it in a silver bucket and topped it with the gummy worms and a ‘gone fishing’ sign. I made one with a white cake topped with white sandwich cookies, peppermints, red and green worms and Christmas sprinkles for a Christmas themed cake, we called it the “Snow Ball Fight.”


1 Cake mixpsalm112
.5 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese (Philly brand)
.5 to 1 cup powdered sugar
(2) small packages instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
12 oz Cool Whip
20 oz Oreos, crushed very fine (I use the food processor)


Mix up and bake cake mix as described on box. Allow to cool. While that is cooking and cooling, in medium bowl mix butter, cream cheese and sugar with a mixer. In a second bowl mix the milk and pudding. Add the whipped topping to the pudding mixture; combine the two mixtures. Crumble up cake. In a glass bowl or flower pot, layer cake and cookie crumbs and filling, ending with crumbs on top. Garnish with  gummy worms and decorations, if you like.
