Famous Chocolate Wafer Cake

Plan B Mom shares, “I had forgotten about Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafer Ice Box Cake, as it is technically known, but came back to it a few years ago and now it’s a great go-to cake for entertaining. I made three ‘logs’ for a nice dinner party I had for 22 people and it looks impressive but can’t get any easier. No oven required. Plus, great fun to make with the kids!”


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package Nabisco® Famous Chocolate Wafers (9 ounces)
  • Chocolate curls or chocolate sprinkles


Begin whipping the cream. Add the sugar and vanilla and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Spread 1/2 tablespoon whipped cream on each wafer. Begin stacking the wafers together on end (on a long serving platter), then stand on edge on the platter to make a 14-inch log.

Frost the log with the remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours. Garnish with chocolate curls or chocolate sprinkles and slice at a 45° angle so that each serving shows the chocolate and white layers.

If desired, you may freeze this cake, covered with plastic wrap; thaw in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.
