My kids love parties!
We actually had a joint birthday party for Lily and Gavin last week. Their birthdays are less than 3 weeks apart, so they usually put together a Halloween-themed party in October. They decided to change the status quo and wanted a pirate party. They did most of the planning and decided the game we were going to play. They picked a Pin the eye patch in a pirate game, as well as a pinata and a scavenger hunt.
I couldn’t find what we were looking for, so I decided to make one up. I ended up making this treasure pudding cake and it was a hit! ! I wasn’t sure what I would do at first, but thought I’d turn our family’s favorite earth cake into a sand cake with crumbled golden Oreos, but wanted to spice it up as well. I headed to Party City and bought some chocolate gold coins and pop rings. For added effect, I also added fake jewelry and necklaces. It’s easy and the perfect addition to our pirate party! !
We actually used this treasure map activity and made it lead to the final fridge with the treasure cake. We found the last clue: The last place to look for gold is where we store our food to keep it cold! 😉 Kids love it! This is one of those treats that looks like a lot of effort but doesn’t. 😉

Tips for getting the best texture
- Make sure you buy instant pudding mix.
- Mix the pudding with the milk until it is the consistency of a cream pudding.
- use whole milk
- Fold without mixing: When you add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and then add the pudding again, make sure you gently fold the ingredients together.
- Make sure your butter is not too soft and definitely not melted
- Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving
- Make it into layered little things or individual cups.
- Use French Vanilla Pudding Mix
shop This covers 3-5 days in the refrigerator. The longer the Oreo is stored, it will gradually soften but still taste delicious.
in advance: Crush the Oreos ahead of time and store in a bag on the counter. You can also prepare the pudding mix ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container until you combine it with the Oreos. A few times I’ve managed to do this the day before serving. Just cover and store in the refrigerator.
I love simple and great recipes and this one turned out great! !
You don’t even need to add treasure on top – you can enjoy it as a regular dessert. In this case, I call it White Chocolate Mud Cake. It’s pretty much the white chocolate version of regular dirt cake. 😉 If you don’t want it to look like sand, you don’t need as many Oreos, which means you’ll just use one pack and add ¾ to the bottom of the pan, then sprinkle on top and set aside. 😉
