Dan & Cindy’s Icebox Cake

by epi on May 25, 2012

Simple, No-Bake and Tasty!

This simple no-bake cake was a staple for Elizabeth Post, Cindy’s mother and Dan’s grandmother. It was so tasty and easy to make that it remains one of our favorite quick-fix desserts today! We use Famous Chocolate Wafers in this icebox cake, and our recipe is a version of the one on the back of the Famous cookie box.


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • A pinch of sugar
  • 1 package Famous Chocolate Wafers


  1. Beat the whipping cream, vanilla and sugar on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Spread a generous spoonful of the whipped cream onto each wafer. Stack the wafers, then lay them down on a platter.
  3. Frost with the remaining whipped cream until all the chocolate is covered.
  4. Refrigerate 4 hours. Cut diagonally to serve.

You can customize the look of your cake by dusting the top with cocoa powder or adding chopped nuts or chocolate shavings as garnish. Of course, the simplicity of the unadorned icebox cake won’t fool anyone — it’s still delicious as is!

i am blessed to have a large home and like to have bridge parties in my home – 4 to 5 tables – 16 to 20 people
i belong to 3 bridge groups and invite members from each group, but there are some i choose not to invite
i always issue my invites via phone or email and always ask my potential guests not to bring up the party @ one of our regular group meetings, but inevitably someone says something and then others join in
i find this very awkward and do not know what to do to insure the parties are not talked about in front of those not invited

help? thanks
