Let’s Review the June Baking Challenge

June 2017 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Blueberry Lemon Icebox Cake

We focused on the creamiest cake of all: icebox cake. Or should I say… the easiest cake of all. I was so happy to read how many of you were pleasantly surprised at how simple icebox cakes are. If you know how to layer graham crackers and whipped cream, you know how to make icebox cake! I really admire some of your variations with different fruits + fillings, too. Totally trying raspberry next time.

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Courtney:

“I made this last week. It was so good, and light. I didn’t even want to put the blueberry sauce in there, I just wanted to eat it all with a spoon. The lemon whipped cream, AMAZING!”

We gathered as many blueberry lemon icebox cake photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)
