Rainbow Sprinkle Vanilla Icebox Cake

Rainbow Sprinkle Vanilla Icebox Cake is made with simple and luscious homemade whipped cream. It’s got crispy outer cookies and sweet, softened inner layers. I did share, but I really, really, very much truly wish that I had eaten the entire recipe myself.

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 10.1-ounce packages Vanilla Oreo Thins* (or substitute Nilla Wafers)
  • Rainbow Sprinkles


  1. In a large bowl, beat cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. On a flat serving plate, spread a thin layer of whipped cream to hold the bottom layer of cookies in place. Arrange 7 cookies side by side in a circle, keeping 1 cookie in the center.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup whipped cream on top of the cookie layer in a circle. Repeat with remaining cookies and cream, making 8 layers of cookies (or more, as long as your cake isn’t falling over!) and ending with a layer of cream (there will be some cookies left over). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Before serving, sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles.

Recipe Notes

I made this with Vanilla Oreo Thins, but you could also use Nilla Wafers
