Flower Pot Dirt Cake

Last weekend was my husband’s 30th birthday! I can’t believe he is already 30! Time just flies by when you are having fun. 🙂 For the occasion, I surprised him with a throwback to some of his childhood favorite foods. We went to his favorite restaurant as a kid and I had to make him a special dessert (I hardly ever buy store-bought cakes because they are so expensive!) He always talks about his mom’s dirt cake so I decided to give it a try!

So cute in a martini glass 🙂

I am so glad I did! It was delicious! I mean, who doesn’t love Oreos? After the cake has chilled for a while the cookies get so soft and yummy. It’s like dipping a cookie in milk! I’m pretty sure that is my happy place. <3

Worms love Oreos too 😛

Other than being mouth-watering, it is so cute! I love how you can decorate the cake to look like a flower pot. 🙂 It looks so realistic that when I showed my husband he thought it was an actual flower! Also, if you don’t want to make it in a flower pot, it looks really nice layered in a glass/clear bowl, too (hint from my mother-in-law.)

My flower pot- I swear it’s a cake!


One of the best parts of this cake is how simple it is to make! There is no baking involved so there is no chance you will burn it. 😀 Yay! Even though it won’t take you long to make, people will still be impressed by how creative your cake looks. It is a win-win!

Haha, my husband modeling his cake!
