A simple Pumpkin Caramel Ice Box Cake that you can have all year round! It will soon become a family favorite to make and enjoy!
I don’t make a lot of desserts, therefore it’s not likely I’ll have a lot of them to share here but I enjoy baking from time to time with my daughter. She likes to bake, 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’s how this Pumpkin Caramel Ice Box Cake was created!
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.
I think you can serve this Pumpkin Caramel Ice Box cake all year round, but here are some ideas for when to serve it.
- Instead of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving (If you need tips on cooking a turkey… check that out here)
- Summer BBQ
- Birthday party for someone who loves pumpkin!
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 crowd!
