The Freshman Cook: How to Make Mini Lemonade Icebox Cakes

How to Make Mini Lemonade Icebox Cakes ~ I am planning a dinner party at the end of August, and although the menu has been set for a week or so, the dessert has been giving me a headache. I want something special. Something that is amazing, but simple, tasty, and beautiful. I browsed some cookbooks, read a lot of blogs, and checked out restaurant menus, looking for inspiration.  Finally, I came up with the idea of making a lemonade ice box cake, but making them small and individual. I think you are really going to like these!

1 teaspoon Crystal Light Lemonade Powder
40 Vanilla Wafer Cookies (10 per cake)
Lemon Peel Begin mixing the heavy whipping cream on medium speed. Add powdered sugar.
Add the lemonade powder to the bowl. Turn the mixer speed to high and mix until the cream is stiff.
Place 3 vanilla wafers in the bottom of each cup. Fill a pastry bag with the whipping cream using a large tip.   

Place a layer of whipping cream over the vanilla wafers .
Add another layer of whipped cream, and then vanilla wafers, and then one more layer. Make more layers if needed (for instance, a larger glass). Add a vanilla wafer to the top of each cake.
The layers will look like this from the side.
Sprinkle lemon zest  over the top of the cake. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours before serving.
 Serve and enjoy!
