An Oreo cake is a type of cake that incorporates Oreo cookies into its ingredients, typically resulting in a dessert with a rich chocolate flavor and a cookies-and-cream texture. The cake may feature crushed or blended Oreo cookies in the batter, frosting, or as a layer between cake layers. It can be made in various forms, such as a layer cake, sheet cake, or even cupcakes.

Common components of an Oreo cake may include chocolate cake layers, Oreo cookie crumbs mixed into the batter, and a frosting or icing made with crushed Oreo cookies. Some recipes may also include layers of Oreo cream filling or ganache for added richness.
