What Really is Strawberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake ?
Simply put, an icebox cake is basically a layered dessert made using crispy cookies and fluffy whipped cream, along with certain other additions depending largely on the recipe. Such a cake is usually assembled and refrigerated for a few hours, which allows the cream to seep into and soak the cookies, thereby softening them and getting them to achieve that cake-like texture.
Icebox cakes are, quite literally, the best no-fuss dessert option, especially if you’re not great at baking and are looking to whip up something that’s delicious. It is also one of the most popular treats to try out during the hot summer months.
