The Creamy Filling

To create the velvety cream filling, you will need whole milk, corn starch, egg yolks, sugar, butter, vanillin, and a pinch of salt. These ingredients come together to form a rich and smooth cream that will be the star of this delectable cake.

Whipped Cream Topping

For the light and fluffy whipped cream topping, we will use plant-based cream and a touch of vanillin. This delightful addition adds a creamy and airy texture that perfectly complements the creamy filling.

The Base – Biscuits

The foundation of this cake is made of biscuits, specifically Miranda biscuits. These biscuits provide a delightful crunch and absorb the flavors of the cream and milk, resulting in a heavenly texture.

Cooking the Cream for the Icebox cake

In a large pot, combine the milk, corn starch, sugar, egg yolks, vanillin, and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until it thickens into a smooth cream. Remove from heat and add the butter, stirring until fully melted. Transfer the cream to a bowl and cover it with cling film, ensuring direct contact with the cream. Refrigerate for an hour to set.

Whipping the Cream

Using a mixer, beat the plant-based cream and vanillin until it reaches a light and fluffy consistency. The whipped cream will add an extra layer of indulgence to our Vanilla Cream Icebox Cake.

Assembling the Vanilla Cream Icebox Cake

Building the Layers: Begin by dunking each biscuit into milk for a second, allowing it to absorb the moisture. Place a layer of biscuits in a square cake ring, followed by a layer of the creamy filling. Repeat this process, alternating layers of biscuits and cream until the desired height is achieved.

Finishing Touches

Pipe a layer of whipped cream on top of the final layer of biscuits, creating a beautiful and delicious finish. Sprinkle some cocoa powder over the whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence and visual appeal.

Serving and Enjoying

Chilling and Serving: Once assembled, refrigerate the Vanilla Cream Icebox Cake for at least 4 hours or overnight. This chilling time allows the flavors to meld together, resulting in a harmonious and delightful dessert. When ready to serve, remove the cake ring and cut into generous slices, placing them on individual dessert plates.
