This cake recipe is pretty much fool proof. You don’t have to be a great cake decorator to make this cake look good and creative either. You can use a regular cake pan when making this, or you can get a little more creative and use a clean flour pot, a kids dump truck, or even a bucket. Then you can decorate the top with fake flowers, gummy worms, and little toy trucks.
Another great thing about this cake is that you can make any combination you want. If you love mint, you can use mint Oreos. If you love butterscotch, you can use butterscotch pudding. Thanks to the many different Oreo, cream cheese, and pudding flavors, the dirt cake flavor combinations are endless.
- 3.5 cups vegan vanilla pudding
- 1 c powdered sugar

- 8 oz. vegan cream cheese
- 1 package chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies

Prepare pudding as directed; chill until cold and fully set.
Cream the powdered sugar, margarine and cream cheese.
Fold in pudding and whipped cream.
Fold in gummy worms.
In a food processor, pulse cookies into crumbs.
In bottom of a clean flower pot or clear bowl, alternately layer pudding mixture and crumbs, starting and ending with crumbs.
Decorate as desired.
I make 1.5 batches of my vegan vanilla pudding recipe, but you can use instant pudding mix if you prefer. Just aim for 3.5 cups of liquid.
