Let's get down to cake. It is a simple recipe of 3 common ingredients, strawberries, crackers, and cool whip being the chief taste bud busters.

And then add a little garnish and frosting and voila: the perfect refreshing dessert.
Ice box cakes are stable favourites of cake aficionados for special occasions, and they aren't technically even cakes! These desserts achieve cake-like texture without the use of ovens, so they stay cold and are ready for immediate serving. Common to ice-box cakes are the layered cream and crackers. Once they sit in the freezer - or the 'ice box' - for a couple of hours or overnight, the crackers absorb the moisture from the cream and they mix and create a moist and chewy cake texture. And you can vary the texture with different kinds of crackers and substitute cream for custard: ice box cakes are so hassle-free to make and easy to tinker with that you can create the perfect ice box dessert to satisfy whatever your craving. I recommend keeping the strawberries on top: they are juicy, healthy, and adds a beautiful dose of red to the cake.We are certain that you willlove this dessert, and have fun making it.
