Tips & Tricks

The recipe is completely customizable. You can use different varieties of graham crackers. 

You can also use any seasonal fruit such as blueberries or cherries to create your own version of this cake. 

You can also put your own twist on the cake by adding some fresh strawberries or raspberries to the cream cheese mixture before you pour it into the cake pan.

Can I freeze the Strawberry Cream Cheese Icebox Cake? 

This particular strawberry icebox cake recipe needs to be refrigerated, not frozen. It’s best enjoyed within 48 hours of preparing it. Moreover, the strawberries do not hold up well in the freezer when used in cakes and destroy the overall flavor of the finished product.

Can I use frozen strawberries? 

I don’t recommend using frozen strawberries to make icebox cake. Frozen berries tend to become soggier than fresh ones after thawing them. This will alter the consistency of your dessert and make it taste different than what you expect.
