How to Make a Red, White and Blueberry Icebox Cake:

Icebox cakes are really easy to make and we only need a few ingredients for this one!

Heavy Whipping Cream


Prepared Instant Vanilla Pudding

Graham Crackers



You’ll start out by whipping the heavy cream and the sugar together into a thick whipped cream. Next gently fold the prepared pudding into the whipped cream.

Line a baking dish with aluminum foil, leave some extra hanging over the edge because we will use it to get the cake out of the pan before serving.

First Layer – a thin layer of the whipped cream mixture goes on the bottom to serve as a base for the cake

Second Layer – A single layer of graham cracker sheets

Third Layer – A thick layer of the whipped cream mixture

Forth Layer – A layer of strawberry slices and blueberries

Repeat layers 2-4

When the cake is assembled put it into the freezer overnight to set!

About 15-20 minutes before you are ready to serve the cake take it out of the freezer. Carefully lift it out of the pan by pulling up on the aluminum foil. Remove the foil from the outsides of the cake and transfer the cake on a serving dish.

Make it more festive with some sparkling candles or sparklers (assuming you are serving the cake outside) if you wish!
