Take your favorite childhood treat and make it bigger and badder with this Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake. Oatmeal cake with marshmallow frosting make this cake absolutely delicious.
Happy Day after Valentines Day! Also known as, better stock up on all the clearance candy ASAP Day! I hope you all had an amazing love filled day.
I had a horrible day. What I have avoided doing my whole entire existence happened. Now I’m going to admit, I’m one of those gals who likes to browse Pinterest or the news on their phone while taking a nice long bubble bath. My husband ALWAYS told me that I would drop that thing in there one day while I was browsing. Do you think that happened to me yesterday? Nope, not exactly!
Although my phone DID take a nice bath, it was because it fell out of my pocket while I was draining the bath for my daughter. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!!! Come on now! So in light of my awful, dead phone, unhappy candy day I just wanna sit here and bask in the glory that is this Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake.
Now who wasn’t (or isn’t) a fan of Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies? I know I can devour a box in like 6.8773 seconds flat. No joke. There is just something about those little soft oatmeal cookies and cream filling that draws a person in and makes the crave more.
Well in the fashion that I love to do so much, I enlarged it and made the iconic cookie gigantic!! Bigger is always better right?
The cookie portion of this cake is just the right amount of soft vs. crunchy. Then topped and filled with a marshmallow buttercream…..oh lordy! If you’ve never tried marshmallow buttercream, you’ll thank me later.
Seriously, one of the best buttercreams out there. The secret is that it has a jar of marshmallow fluff mixed in. Now who doesn’t love that stuff to begin with.
So I hope that this Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake will satisfy your massive cravings for the smaller version, just on a more massive scale!

Wondering if I did something wrong. I just finished mixing the cake ingredients and there is no way I can “pour the batter”. I have a cookie dough not a batter. Is this right?
Yes it’s spreadable and thick! I guess pour wasn’t the correct work, spread is better.
Might be a dumb question but the 3rd line in the directions reads, “in bowl cream to your butter and sugars…”, what does that mean?
Means you beat them together with a hand mixer 🙂

OH NO to your Valentine’s Day being rough and ruined by your phone taking a bath! That is one of my greatest fears, and because of it, I don’t bring my phone or Kindle anywhere near the bathtub… when I’m soaking or my daughter is taking a bath. Did you try the rice trick? I hear that helps when a phone has been submerged!
This Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake sounds INCREDIBLE. I love those Little Debbie cookies, and I know I’ll adore this. I meaaaaaaan… how could I not?
Thanks Erin. Yes we had it in rice. It turns on now, but the touch screen doesnt work so it’s DOA unless I buy a part and hope it works. SO a new phone has been purchased. This cake on the other hand made me happy and that’s all that matters!
