Pumpkin Caramel Ice Box Cake
I don’t make a lot of desserts and therefore it’s not likely I’ll have a lot of them to share here. I enjoy baking from time to time with my daughter, because it’s something she likes to do, but to be totally honest, I find baking recipes to be a bit stressful to make. The instructions need to be followed very carefully and the recipes are quite precise. I rather enjoy making things up as I go, switching out ingredients, and basically just being a cooking rebel.
That being said, there are times when a treat is necessary and it’s not always possible to get an order in at your favorite bakery in time. That’s when a few easy homemade dessert recipes that you keep on hand and that you know to be tried and true are a great option.
Ice box cakes have been around for a long time but are a fairly new discovery to me. And, might I add, kind of a life saver! No precise measuring and no actual baking involved yet you can make a cake that will be the hit of the party. I’ve made three in the last few weeks and none have disappointed.
With homemade whipped cream and caramel sauce plus a little help in the form of graham crackers and pumpkin puree, this is a mostly homemade dessert that is easy to make and perfect for feeding a fall crowd!
