Description

Easy icebox cake, perfect for summer, feeds a crowd, no baking, and made with homemade whipped cream!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups (720ml) heavy cream or heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup (40g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2021 full-sheet graham crackers
  • 2 cups (380g) sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup (100g) blueberries
  • optional: additional berries and colorful sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Preliminary notes: There are 3 layers of graham crackers, 3 layers of whipped cream, and 2 layers of berries (plus any you use for topping). Each layer of graham crackers is about 7 graham crackers (you can break some up to fit). This recipe yields 6 cups of whipped cream and you will use 2 cups per layer.
  2. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and almond extracts together on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, about 4 minutes. Spread a couple Tablespoons into a very, very thin layer on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. This will help the bottom layer of graham crackers stick. Layer graham crackers on top.
  3. Spread about 2 cups of whipped cream on top of the graham crackers. Then layer the sliced strawberries on top. Follow with another layer of graham crackers, 2 more cups of whipped cream, then the blueberries and another layer of graham crackers. Spread the remaining whipped cream on top and sprinkle with any additional berries and sprinkles.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  5. Cut into slices and serve cold.

Notes

  1. Make Ahead Instructions: You can make this icebox cake the day before you need it because it can set overnight in the refrigerator. The graham crackers and fruit become a little too mushy by day 3 or 4, so keep that in mind with any leftovers.
