Icebox cake. It is not a new thing, but it is for me. I saw this on SmittenKitchen’s blog and it looks so pretty. So I made the wafers from scratch, whip some cream, and fill up the cone alternately with cream, wafer, cream, wafer and cream again. Okay, it might be the ugliest icebox cookies you have ever seen. I prefer to call it ‘rustic’ style. I made wafers with varying sizes and tried to fit them into the cones. Then I finished it off by dusting some cocoa powder on top. Easiest dessert in the world. Minus the homemade wafer part, of course.
I am off the Royal Selangor challenge, as I found the challenge to be too overwhelming and with work commitment, it was a bit too much. And I am 6 recipes short to fulfill the 30 day challenge. My hats’ off to those who complete. And I would love to know how they manage. I tried waking up in the morning and make some jellies, went to work, rushed home to take pictures before the sun went off. Err.. that didn’t work. At all.
But, it is quite an achievement, on my part, to do it first half of the challenge.
Icebox Cake with Homemade Chocolate Wafer
250 ml heavy cream
30 g sugar
20 chocolate wafers
Cocoa powder for dusting
Whip cold heavy cream with an electric beater over medium speed.
When the cream turns slightly thicker, about 2 minutes later, add sugar into the cream.
Continue whipping fast speed until soft peak, about 2 minutes.
Line container with plastic wrap.
Fill bottom of container with whipped cream. I used piping bag because the container is quite small.
Layer the cream with wafers. Top the wafers with more cream.
Continue until the top of the containers. Cover it up with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate overnight. Serve cold.
