  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream (1 Qt)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Orange food coloring I use gel food coloring
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) package Oreo cookies (you need about 42 cookies total plus more to fill any spots. 1 package brings 36 cookies)

To Decorate the Icebox Cake


  • Line a 9-inch spring form pan with plastic wrap or parchment paper, that sticks about an inch above the sides of the pan.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer using a whisk attachment, whisk the heavy cream, vanilla extract and powdered sugar on high speed until stiff peaks form (about 5 minutes).
  • Divide the whipped cream equally into 3 mixing bowls. Color each with orange food coloring, gently folding in the color until completely mixed through. Make each one a different shade of orange (light to dark).
  • Place a single layer of cookies into the bottom of the pan, you can add pieces of broken oreos in between the gaps if you wish but it is not necessary.
  • Top the cookies with one third of the whipped cream. I used the darker shade for the bottom layer. Spread evenly with a spatula.
  • Top with a second layer of cookies.
  • Top the second cookie layer with 1/3 of the whipped cream and spread evenly with a spatula.
  • Top with oreo cookies and then with the remaining whipped cream. Spread evenly, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and decorate with the icing and sprinkles.


  • To be able to cut nice firm slices, you must refrigerate the icebox cake for at least 8 hours.
  • Nutrition facts are only an estimate and vary depending on the brand of products. It is also calculating 2 packages of cookies instead of the exact amount needed.
