Heavenly Oreo™ Cookie Cake

I guess this week’s theme is “oreos” since last night I made these white chocolate dipped oreos, and tonight I made this delicious oreo cookie cake. I used to make a similar kind with my mom, but sometimes we used cool whip for the frosting and we would freeze it. Other times we made it this way, with traditional vanilla frosting and crushed oreos…yum!
