How to make an icebox cake

Usually, icebox cakes are made with pudding, whipped cream, and cookies, but there are so many ways to change up the flavours. This means that you can take one recipe and make several different desserts.

For icebox cakes, it pays to keep cookies and pudding mixes in your pantry and whipped topping in the freezer. This allows you to throw together a quick icebox cake in a matter of minutes.
