Banana Pudding Icebox Cake

I think know it is Banana Pudding Icebox Cake time! Why?
 Because It is HOT, HOT, HOT!
I grew up eating vanilla wafers and pudding, as I am sure, you probably did too. It is the first recipe I remember learning from my mom, and I make a birthday cake version of it for every one of my son's birthdays. So, my mind went to making a Banana Pudding Icebox Cake as we enjoy another heat wave here in the south, and I only want to cook if an oven or stove are not involved! 

This Banana Pudding Icebox Cake recipe is so close to the original. The only major difference is that you mix the pudding with whipping cream instead of milk.

Beat together until cream is thick, and it has become whipped cream. It will be heavier because of the pudding mix.
vanilla wafers, whipped cream
Spread a layer of the whipped cream over the vanilla wafers.
