Cherry Icebox Birthday Cake

Recipe by: Willow Bird Baking
Yield: 4 servings

SO EASY, SO GOOD! I fashioned this cheery Cherry Icebox Birthday “Cake” in two 2-cup apothecary jars for a cute presentation, but if you don’t have a 2-cup vessel, you can always make it in one loaf pan lined with parchment paper and, after chilling overnight, turn it out on a platter. Grab yourself a bag of the new birthday cake Oreos and enjoy!

2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
7 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoons Kirsch (cherry flavored liqueur)*
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package birthday cake Oreos
maraschino cherries
sprinkles (optional)
*If you don’t have any Kirsch or don’t want to use it, try subbing in 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice. I haven’t tried it, but I bet it’d be good.

Whip the cream, powdered sugar, Kirsch, and vanilla extract together in a chilled bowl to stiff peaks. In two, 2-cup glasses or in one loaf pan lined with parchment paper, layer birthday cake Oreos and cherry whipped cream, starting with Oreos and ending with cream. If you want to get fancy, you could include a maraschino cherry layer! Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, top with sprinkles and maraschino cherries!

    We had about 3.5 seconds of gorgeous weather on Saturday/Sunday and I had all the windows in my apartment and car open. Plus, I’m pretty sure I had dreams of flip flops and pink polish on my toes…until I woke up this morning to 2 inches of snow. Boo!

    Loved this post, and your beautiful dessert!

    Oh that first photo simply needs a “scratch & sniff” on there!
    Just a stunning photo!
    Here on cape cod we just had 2 days of 50 degree weather–I was at the beach soaking up the sun and inhaling as much fresh air as I could!

    This looks beyond amazing. I am pretty sure I would be more than happy to wake up to this on my birthday – yes, I would totally eat this for breakfast!!

    Yum! Gotta love the rainbow sprinkles. Cakes are so fun to bake and even more fun to decorate, even if they do take hours to finish 🙂
