There's nothing worse than baking hot dishes on an even hotter day. That is why this strawberry icebox cake is a summer favorite. You can learn how to make a strawberry icebox cake without ever touching your oven! Tasty and sweet, this summer dessert is ideal for Fourth of July celebrations and other summer parties.

From the Chef: Starting with fresh berries and basil, this dessert is unique and fresh for a hot summer day, and it's one of my favorites to demonstrate at live cooking events. Eat with a spoon or use your hands to pull apart the shortbread pieces. It's perfect for any brunch or daytime dessert-eating occasion.

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 2 (8-ounce) containers mascarpone cream, room temperature
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Although there's mention of bananas in this recipe and there is no sign of them anywhere in the instructions or video...I think they would really be an amazing addition to the strawberries and other ingredients. I love shortbread cookies and strawberries so this will definitely be a huge hit in my home, however, this would make an amazing trifle. I'd mash the strawberries and incorporate them into the cream mixture then layer it with the shortbread cookies broken into chunks as well as the bananas.

This looks extremely yummy! I love strawberries (we should get a batch from our garden this year) and this is a wonderful serving idea. A question, though. In the listing of ingredients, it mentions a sliced banana. The banana, however, is not mentioned in the instructions. How and where is it used? Is it added to the strawberry layers or placed on top as the last layer? It looks like this recipe could use a bit more editing.
