My husband's birthday is the first week in January.
We are usually feeling a little "full" food-wise this time of year.
We have spent the last few weeks finishing off holiday leftovers
and eating every last cookie, piece of peppermint bark and bag of
candy that found their way into our house over the holidays.
And now-it's time for cake!
I thought the traditional log version of an
old-fashioned ice box cake would be the perfect solution.
It's fun for the kids to make, super tasty, and small enough that there
wouldn't be any left to tempt us to continue eating the next day.
- 1 package Nabisco chocolate wafers
- 1 pint heavy whipping crew
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2-3 tbsp. powdered sugar
Whip together the heavy cream, vanilla and powdered sugar
with an electric mixer to make a heavy whipped cream.
Cover the top of each chocolate wafer with the
whipped cream and then stack sideways to form a log.
Cover the whole log with the remaining whipped cream
and refrigerate overnight (or at least 5-6 hours).
