I don’t even know where to begin with how amazingly delicious and easy this Strawberry Icebox Cake is! Strawberries, whipped cream, and graham crackers - that’s all you need to make this no-bake wonder.
In a stand mixer or with a hand-held mixer, beat the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
Place a very thin layer of cream on the bottom of a 9x9 square pan. Next, add a single layer of graham crackers. Top with 1/3 of the whipped cream and smooth with a spatula. Add 1/3 of the strawberries in an even layer. Repeat layers 2 more times, ending with strawberries. Arrange the berries in a pretty pattern, if desired.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
While my bowl and beaters to whip the cream are chilling in the freezer, I slice up the strawberries. It’s good to have extra on hand in case you can’t help eating them like me. Whip the cream until light and fluffy. This takes less than five minutes with an electric mixer. You’re now ready to assemble.
Place a smear of whipped cream on the bottom of your pan, this will keep your graham crackers from slip-sliding around when you try to add the next layer. So, a smear of whipped cream and then a single layer of graham crackers. You’ll need to cut some of them to fit the gaps.
Next, top with a layer of whipped cream and then a layer of sliced strawberries. From there, repeat the layers ending with a layer of strawberries arranged nice and pretty. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight. The crackers will be cake-like, the strawberries will have lent their fruity sweetness to the cream and your friends and family will thank you.
