Fruit and Cream Icebox Cake with Mango and Raspberries • Tara Teaspoon

Combine wafer cookies, creamy vanilla ice cream, sorbet, mangoes and raspberries to create a dream. A dreamy no-bake, icebox cake that is!

 

Delicious and impressively beautiful.  You will take the prize for the prettiest, tastiest dessert at your summer party. And who doesn’t love a layered dessert?

Layered cakes and desserts have something for everyone. This ice cream, sorbet and fresh fruit situation knocks them all out of the park! I wanted an icebox cake with all the tasty elements: a little crunch (you get that from the cookies), something fresh (layers of actual fruit), and something creamy and sweet to balance the tart sorbets (vanilla ice cream).

Every spoonful is a party in your mouth made of up textures, sweet, tangy, cold and juicy. Plus, this recipe is super easy thanks to prepared ice creams and store-bought cookies.

Start with an 8-inch springform pan. I like to put mine in the freezer for a bit before I start to fill it, so the ice cream doesn’t immediately start to melt before it heads back to its cold abode.

Next line the pan edge with your trimmed Viennese cookies. I love these rolled wafer cookies because they have such a light crunch and soft filling. They are perfect for frozen desserts. You don’t get a bite-full of hard, frozen cookie.

I made a note in the recipe to freeze your mango slices to cut out a step. You could do this with the cookies too. Once you trim them to size, feel free to keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to assemble. They’ll be cold, so you could just jump right into the step of spreading the vanilla ice cream layer in.

 

A few simple steps and some time in the freezer is all it takes to make this impressive Fruit and Cream Icebox Cake!

 

As extremely easy as this recipe is, it does take some time. It’s best if each layer gets some time in the freezer before the next is added. This keeps your layers separated and pretty. Ideally freeze the completed cake overnight before serving, but if your freezer is fantastic it could just take a few hours.

Let me know what you think of this delicious dessert. You could even try experimenting with other fruit or sorbet!
