Ginger Snap Icebox Cake

If you’re looking for a fun, easy, and holiday-flavored dessert, keep reading! This dessert is cold, but here in Florida, Christmas time isn’t exactly a winter wonderland. We have to create our own winter wonderland and I know there are other parts of the country that do, too (here’s looking at you, Southern California!). So, why not a chilled cake? Packed with wintertime flavors like ginger and cinnamon, this Ginger Snap Icebox Cake is a hit!

This cake only uses 4 ingredients: heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, ground cinnamon, and gluten-free Ginger Snap Cookies from Flax 4 Life. These cookies are delicious on their own, but by stacking them into a gorgeous tower glued together by whipped cream, you suddenly have a presentation-worthy dessert without much effort.
