Reviews for Icebox Cake
"Amazing and cheap! Tou can find the wafers at Walmart. Only problem I had was finding a box with wafers in tact, most were broken."
"I used the Dare Chocolate thins as I could not find the wafers and it turned out great! They are much easier to find!"
"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. :)"
"This is a great recipe! It's easy to make, has a nice presentation, appeals to a broad range of tastes and will compliment a variety of meals. You just can't go wrong with this one!"
"They are also around the Vanilla Wafers, usually on the top shelf of the market."
