{SMS} Lemon Icebox Cake with Fresh Blackberry Sauce

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there! I hope you have a good one.


This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays selection is a Lemon Icebox Cake with Fresh Strawberry Sauce. I’ve never made an icebox cake, which seems to me (correct me if I’m wrong) to be frozen custard with a meringue topping and a vanilla wafer crust. You separate the eggs, cook the yolks with sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Pour it into the crust. Whip the egg whites and place them on top of the custard base and bake in the oven for a few minutes.  Once cooled to room temperature you place in the freezer. When ready to serve you take it out of the freezer and  top it with the strawberry sauce, or in my case, blackberry sauce.


Jennifer of Keep Passing the Open Windows chose this delicious recipe. Give it a try and visit her blog for the reicpe.

  1. What a lovely idea using blackberries! I wasn’t too keen on the strawberry sauce with the lemon, but I bet blackberry worked really well. Yum!

  2. I’ll have to try the sauce with blackberries, seeing as I’m pretty much obsessed with them. The strawberry sauce tasted a bit watery. This was a good dessert, wasn’t it?

  3. Prettiest I’ve seen! Boy if I had the patience and energy, I’d love to participate in another baking group… I’m just too lazy, which I hadyour stamina!

    Marvelous, as always, Pink! (Love calling you Pink, but is it even a nickname of yours… I don’t think so, huh? …okay, well I made it my nickname for you! LOL)

  4. You’re a little off on the definition of an icebox cake; It’s really a cake consisting of wafers (generally chocolate) and whipped cream that is allowed to sit overnight in the fridge (or ‘icebox’) so the cookies absorb the moisture from the whipped cream and become soft.

    Your dessert is very pretty, though.

  5. Ooooh, what a pretty cake! I love the picture with the blackberry sauce dripping down the side. I had to skip this week but I can’t wait to make the cake later this summer.

  6. Love love love the pictures of that yummy lemon icebox cake! Great green background color and that awesome-shaped plate!

    That blackberry sauce looks to die-for!

    You’re always killing me, woman. 😉

  7. Thanks for the happy mother’s day wishes!

    I’m not certain what an icebox cake is but it looks good. Did you like it? You didn’t mention.
