Storage Instructions:

Keep it in an airtight container for up to 3 days. This no-bake cake isn’t really a candidate for freezing though because it will be watery and mushy when thawed.

Variations and Substitutions:

You can use any flavor of instant pudding here, or swap the sour cream for yogurt. Greek yogurt is especially creamy and rich. A non-dairy milk would work in place of the regular milk, and you can also use any kind of pie filling you happen to like. Oh, and subbing tangy lemon curd for the sweetened condensed milk offers a tarter flavor for those who don’t like their cakes overly sweet.
