Birthday Cake Lush is a fabulously delicious pudding dessert that’s perfect for anytime you are craving birthday cake. With its super cool and creamy texture, this no-bake dessert is even better than birthday cake.
Birthday Cake Lush has an oreo crust made from birthday cake flavored Oreos.
On top of the crust is a pudding layer with funfetti cake mix mixed in to give it cake flavor. The final layer is Cool Whip. You could make homemade whipped cream to use instead of the Cool Whip.
On top- sprinkles. Lots of sprinkles. Don’t they just make you smile?
It only takes 15 minutes to assemble this Birthday Cake Lush but it does need some time to chill in the fridge before you serve it. You will want to refrigerate it for at least 6 to 8 hours before serving.
Hold off on putting the top layer of Cool whip and the sprinkles on until just before serving. The sprinkles tend to bleed into the Cool Whip over time. Some branbs of Sprinkles do this worse then others.
This cool and creamy no-bake dessert is perfect for summer birthday parties and potlucks.

Your blog is superb, I never tried this cake lush before but now I will try my level best to do that and will surely make some cakes for my family.
Where do you add the milk??? It’s in the ingredients but missing from the instructions.
Step 5. has the instructions on adding the milk 🙂
Sorry, step 3. has the instructions on adding the milk.
I love love love the idea & the light freshness of this dessert, BUT…as a baker, I am concerned about the cake mix in the pudding. Why? Because of the flour base of the cake mix. Flour should always be cooked in some manner prior to consumption. If I am incorrect, I apologize, but all my training has taught this or someone could get ill. Food for thought. Be blessed!
I made this yesterday and it was sooo yummy, but when I added the sprinkles to the mixture, the dyes came together and the mixture was a grayish color..
Would you like to tell me how can we make such things while sitting at home, most of the videos skip some important steps, I was planning to make a Pizza but dow was not made perfect by myself?
So excited to try this! I have a couple questions:
1.) do I combine the cake mix and vanilla pudding mix as is and just add the one cup of milk, or am I supposed to follow the box directions to make the cake and pudding mixes before adding it to the bowl?
2.) After combining the pudding and cake mix, do I mix in the cool whip then add it on top of the oreo layer, or do I spread the mix layer on first then add the cool whip on top of that (so it’s two separate layers)?
Sorry if these are silly questions and I hope they make sense! Thanks so much for for your help 🙂
Do not follow the box directions. Just mix the dry cake and pudding mixes with the milk.
Then mix half of the Cool Whip into the pudding mixture. Save the other half to spread on top as a separate layer.
I can’t wait to try this. My mouth started salivating by seeing this only. Cookies are my favorite and any type of cakes is great for me. I love to try different types of cakes and this is kind of different one which I haven’t tried yet. So I’m definitely going to try this soon and will definitely let you know, how it turned out. I never regretted any moment that came to your blog!
Look gorgeous! I will try to make this soon for my kids. Hope they will love it,
