Orange Creamsicle Ice Box Cake Brings Back Memories
This easy icebox cake reminds me of my ice cream truck days. My friends and I could be in a very serious game of hide and seek, but if we heard the ice cream truck (even from blocks away) everyone would immediately abandon their hiding places to run home to get money for ice cream.
The ice cream I purchased most often was an orange Creamsicle. Creamsicles were the best of both worlds; smooth ice cream and fruity popsicles! They were the perfect blend of orange/vanilla and fruit/cream. Each bit was so satisfying, I just loved them! Which is why I am pretty excited about this icebox cake.
About this Orange Creamsicle Ice Box Cake
This cake is so easy; it is such a great summertime treat! Graham crackers make up the “cake” while a creamy, orange custard is layered in between. The custard does require a little cooking, but aside from that, the only challenge will be to wait for the icebox cake to chill before you can dig in! I topped my Orange Creamsicle Cake with a homemade whipped topping (frozen whipped topping works just as well).
The method for making this icebox cake is simple and the ingredient list is short. What is even better is I was able to use Kroger store brand for each ingredient.
I used the Kroger Mobile App to purchase all of my ingredients, and guess what? You can do the same! The mobile app is so easy to use and it is so convenient too!

- ¾ cup sugar
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- Pinch of salt
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 cups half and half
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons orange zest
- ½ cup orange juice
- 45 graham cracker squares
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 4 tablespoons sugar
In a small saucepan, whisk together the first three ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and half and half. Slowly mix egg mixture into the sugar mixture whisking constantly; bring to a boil. Continue to whisk; boil for 1 minute. Whisk in the butter and the orange zest until the butter has melted. Mix in the orange juice.
Pour mixture into a metal bowl and place the bowl over ice. Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes or until the custard has thickened and cooled.
Meanwhile, line an 8 x 8 inch square pan with plastic wrap allowing enough to extend over the sides. Place 9 graham cracker squares on the bottom, overlapping them if necessary.
Spoon about ¾ cup of custard over the graham crackers and spread to the edges. Top with 9 more graham crackers and repeat process. Top with remaining 9 crackers. Cover the cake tightly and freeze for 8 hours or overnight.
Before serving, lift the cake from the pan and place on your serving dish. Remove the plastic wrap and allow the cake to stand for an hour.
Before serving, whisk the heavy cream on high; gradually add in the sugar until the cream develops soft peaks. Cover the top of the cake with the whipped cream. Store the cake in the refrigerator.
