Lemon-Ginger Icebox Cake

Make a Lemon Ginger Icebox Cake & impress your guests without turning on the oven! #gfree

Two years ago I mentioned meeting a lovely woman named Megan (pronounced MEE-gan) on a bus ride to visit my parents. She introduced me to the wonderful world of icebox cakes. I had heard of them but didn’t really know what they were. Basically, you alternate layers of cookies with whipped cream or mousse and put it in the whole thing in the refrigerator overnight. The cream or mousse seeps into the cookies and softens them and voila! They become soft like cake. Apparently, icebox cakes were big in the 50s and I am noticing they are starting to make a huge comeback. I mean who doesn’t want to be able to make a gorgeous dessert without turning on the oven?
