Patriotic Icebox Cake Recipe


I love browsing Pinterest and looking at all the beautifully decorated Cakes  . Truth be told I SUCK at cake decorating.

When I do make a cake I am usually embarrassed to present it to my family let alone the whole internet!

A few summers back I discovered an icebox cake recipe where you layer ice cream sandwiches and various toppings. It looks complicated, but this icebox cake recipe honestly couldn't be more easy to put together.

My version uses red and blue ice cream for an even more stunning presentation. Now you can wow your guests at your 4th of July picnic without slaving (or stressing) over piping a cake!

Let me show you how.
