Strawberry Ice Box Cake

 I rarely try recipes from cooking magazines these days because I have so many selections from cookboos that I own, also from previous old recipe collections of mine, the Internet, and even better, recipes from my foodie friends' blogs which I could be trying out every single day. I also have the newest issues of Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, and Food and Wine, but for now, those are just reading materials for now until I can catch up with all the others.
For the tutorial video, with the proper round wafers...click: Strawberry Ice Box Cake

So what's wrong with this dessert?...the wafer cookies!...the directions!
I bought the August, 2011 issue of Woman's Day, at the checkout isle, from my local Publix supermarket, and I was so thrilled with all the light summer recipes, as in my previous post with the Watermelon Feta salad. I still want to try a few more recipes in this issue, but I have to resolve this wafer, and directions problem first. I was looking for a good quality of chocolate wafer cookies...the ones I remember, from 20 or 30 years ago, that were such high quality for ice-box cakes. No Luck!
I had no other choice than to buy a much less quality wafers, that turned out to be a dry, tasteless, soggy tasting mess, that totally ruined my yummy, tasty, and healthy frozen delight!
I will post the recipe, as it is in the magazine, and you be the judge as to what went wrong, besides the tasteless wafer cookies. We enjoyed the frozen delight...minus the wafers. I will make this again, now that I googled the wafers, and found out that I can actually buy Nabisco wafer cookies online! While I was googling, just check this awesome recipe out on this site with Oreo Fridge Cake
This also is a must try for me!
