  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Two 3.4 oz boxes of instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk
  • 8 oz Cool Whip
  • 10 oz shortbread cookies
  • 11 oz rainbow sprinkles
  • Whipped cream (for topping, optional)


  1. Mix Filling:
    • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the pudding powder and vanilla extract, mixing until smooth. Gradually pour in the milk, then gently fold in the Cool Whip and most of the rainbow sprinkles.
  2. Layer Cake:
    • Line an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Spread a thin layer of the pudding mixture on the bottom. Place a layer of shortbread cookies over the pudding, breaking the cookies as necessary to fit the pan.
  3. Build Layers:
    • Continue to alternate layers of the pudding mixture and cookies, finishing with a layer of pudding. Sprinkle the top with the remaining rainbow sprinkles.
  4. Chill:
    • Freeze the cake for 4 hours or refrigerate overnight to allow the layers to set and the flavors to meld. Before serving, let the cake sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to soften slightly.
  5. Garnish:
    • If desired, decorate the top with whipped cream and additional sprinkles for an extra festive touch.


  • Softer Cookie Layer: For those who prefer a softer texture to their icebox cake, allow it to chill overnight in the refrigerator. The cookies will soften further, making the cake easier to slice.
  • Customization: Feel free to experiment with different types of cookies, such as Golden Oreos or Nilla wafers, to add varied flavors and textures to your cake.
  • Serving: Keep the cake chilled until ready to serve to maintain its firmness and freshness.
