What is an Icebox Cake?

This would be a layered dessert that resembles a cake. Made with whipped topping and cake. The Icebox, refers to what used to be a staple appliance in homes. It would store foods at a low temperature. Today they are known as Refrigerators. Icebox Cake simply means the cake is stored in the refrigerator.

Why is this such a good recipe?

It is the perfect dessert for the warm weather. It is cool and refreshing. Plus the fact that it is super easy and quick to make.

What type of pudding should I use?

Any flavor is a good choice. However, if you can find a strawberry-flavored pudding mix, I would say that is the best to use with this cake.

Can I use fresh strawberries in this cake?

Certainly! Simply wash, dry, trim, and slice them. They will be perfect in this recipe.

Are there any variations?

Of course, there are. You can change up the fruit, you can use a different flavor pudding, or you could even use Nilla Wafers for the crust layer.

My Evaporated milk did not form peaks, why?

This is often due to using fat-free products, it could also be from the amount of sugar used. You can try to add sugar, use a full-fat cream or beat the eggs for a longer period of time.

How do I get even layers?

Using an offset spatula will help when spreading the topping. The strawberry slices all need to be equal widths. Very seldom do we ever have this cake and the layers perfectly even.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, but rather than placing it in the refrigerator, place it in the freezer after wrapping tightly. The cake can be frozen for a few hours. To serve, thaw it out first.

How do I slice a frozen dessert?

Run the knife under hot water before slicing. This will help get through the layers neatly.
