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!"tags: desserts no-cook more
