MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2014

My mom made this cake for years because it was inexpensive, and yet still a luxury back in the 60s and 70s. We didn't make stacks, however. She just had me put whipped cream on each cookie and sandwich them on end until a long cake was formed. Refrigerating it is an important step for the wafers to absorb the moisture. I have found the wafers in my small town on the top shelf of the cookie aisle. Best cake ever, especially if you have a little one involved in making it. They will believe they are the king/queen of cakes. :)

They are also around the Vanilla Wafers, usually on the top shelf of the market.

We've made this recipe for years - have it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The hardest part is finding the cookies. They are called Famous Cookies and come in a long box. Usually I find them in the ice cream section or near it.
