"Icebox cakes the hottest cold treats in town! A sumpturous marriage between cookies and whipped cream, an icebox cake is more than the sum of its parts. In its most basic form, crisp cookies or wafers are sandwiched between layers of billowy whipped cream or pudding and then chilled in the fridge overnight. As the cake rests, the cookies soften and transform into a delicious and dense, cakelike texture. Here, you'll find fantastic flavor combinations starting with the Old School, that classic pairing of chocolate wafers and luscious whipped cream. Then you'll be ready for treats like Luscious Lemon with its lemon curd filling and layers of ladyfingers. Or perhaps the Salty Milk Dud is more up your alley with its chocolate graham crackers and saly caramel pudding topped with billowy mounds of choclate whipped cream,"--page [4] of cover.
