Whipped Strawberry Icebox cake with fresh strawberries

This is a beautiful summer dessert!

During the summer months, fresh strawberries are one of my favorite treats!  Nothing says summer to me like the sweet tart flavor of amazing fresh strawberries from the market or garden!

This dessert is wonderfully easy and requires no baking (yay to not turning on the oven!).  It is both light and rich at the same time (and is not too sweet).  If you’ve never made an icebox cake before, they are wonderful and so easy!

  1. I have a question. Can I make the strawberry ice box cake using Splenda or will it cause the whipping cream not to stiffen up?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Lucy, we have never made this recipe with Splenda but I worry the whipped cream portion would not stabilize properly. If you do decide to attempt it please let us know how it turns out!

  2. Yummy! I have made this with the Nilla wafers and also with pound cake or angel food cake sliced thinly. Delicious. Thanks for posting.
