Icebox cakes are the perfect sweet treat for summer! The no-bake dessert is great for days when it’s too hot to even think about turning on your oven — let alone eat a warm cake. Traditionally made with layers of whipped cream and cookies, icebox cakes are a simple dessert recipe that’s infinitely customizable and perfect for hot summer days. Here are five icebox cake recipes from TikTok that are truly delicious.
This mixed berry icebox cake is topped with vibrant fresh fruit and would be a hit dessert at any Fourth of July or summer get-together! To make it, place a layer of graham crackers at the bottom of a baking dish. Spread a layer of vanilla pudding on top of the graham crackers. Then add fresh strawberry slices. Add another layer of graham crackers and pudding. Then add blackberries. Next, add a final layer of graham crackers, and top them with whipped cream, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.
This s’mores icebox cake is a refreshing take on the classic campfire treat! Start by making a filling out of whipped heavy cream, marshmallow fluff and mini marshmallows. Then, melt chocolate chips by mixing them with boiling heavy cream to make a ganache. Spread the marshmallow filling on the bottom of a parchment-lined baking dish. Then add a layer of chocolate ganache, followed by a layer of graham crackers. Repeat this process one more time. Then chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Flip the cake onto a tray. Then decorate it with whipped cream, marshmallows, crushed graham crackers and chocolate ganache.
This simple banana pudding icebox cake is packed with banana flavor! To make it, add a layer of graham crackers to the bottom of a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then add a layer of vanilla pudding mixed with whipped cream, followed by a layer of sliced bananas. Add a second layer of graham crackers, and place it in the refrigerator until it solidifies. Then flip the cake onto a platter to serve!
This easy-to-make two-ingredient icebox cake proves that some desserts are truly greater than the sum of their parts! Simply whip one cup of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Optionally, at this point, you can add in sugar or vanilla yogurt to sweeten up the cream. Then mix crushed Oreo cookies into the whipped cream. Spread the whipped cream onto the bottom of a baking dish. Then layer several times with whole Oreos and more whipped cream. If you’re feeling fancy, add a drizzle of chocolate and some Oreo crumbles to the top. Then refrigerate for at least three hours.
This might just be the ultimate icebox cake for chocolate lovers! Start by making a filling out of whipped cream, hot chocolate mix, cayenne and cinnamon. Spread the whipped cream onto the bottom of a baking dish. Then layer several times with Nilla wafer cookies and more chocolate whipped cream. Refrigerate for six hours and serve!
