Oreo Cookies and Cream Icebox cake

Sharing is caring!

An easy to make, Oreo Cookies and Cream Icebox cake is a no bake dessert which has layers of Oreo biscuits with additional layers of thick Mascarpone and double cream whipped together. Just a little patience is needed as you wait for the filling to set and the Oreo cookies to soften.

I make no apologies for the amount of cookies and cream in this cake. There is a time and place for indulgence, and this is one of them.

What is an Icebox cake?

An icebox cake is very much like a no bake cheesecake. Unlike a cheesecake which has a crushed biscuit base, icebox cakes have layers of whole biscuits, where each layer is filled with a cream cheese filling. Although in this case, a Mascarpone and Cream filling.

Rather than bake, you leave the cake in the fridge to set before serving.

Tips for making this Oreo Cookies and Cream Icebox cake.

  • It’s essential that you use a spring form cake tin. This will make it easier to release the cake when ready to serve. You’ll also be able to use the base of the cake tin as a serving dish. Just be careful placing it on your favouring serving plate as it could slip and slide off.
  • Always mix the Mascarpone with the icing sugar first until it’s just combined.
  • Don’t add all the cream at once. Do it in stages. Half and half at a time. Avoid over beating. If it becomes too thick. Add a drop more cream to help loosen the mixture.
  • Allow the cake to fully set in the fridge before serving.

Ingredients

  • 400 g Mascarpone
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 50 g Chocolate flavoured icing sugar Sieved
  • 500 ml Double cream
  • 50 small round cream filled chocolate biscuits such as Oreos. Save 5 of these for decoration.

Instructions

  • Mix together the mascarpone, vanilla extract and icing sugar until well combined.
  • Add the double cream half at a time and mix to a thick spreading consistency. Do not overmix. If it becomes too thick add a little more cream to loosen it.
  • Line the base of an 20cm springform cake tin, evenly with 15 biscuits. You may have to chip away at a couple to get them all in.
  • Take a quarter of the filling and cover the tops of the biscuits. Smooth and level out the surface, filling in any cracks. Complete the process twice more.
  • Pour the remaining quarter of the cream filling into a piping bag with your preferred nozzle and pipe rosettes evenly on the top of the cake.
  • Complete the decoration with the remaining five cookies.
  • Place in the fridge to set for several hours to allow the cookies to soften to a cake like consistency. Preferably overnight.
  • When ready to serve, remove the springform part of the tin and place your icebox cake on your favourite cake stand or plate.
