No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Icebox Cake

Recipe by: Willow Bird Baking
Yield: 15 servings

This icebox cake is delicious and full of fall flavor! The pumpkin whipped cream is just barely sweetened so the overall sweetness level is perfect. The recipe below is a basic guideline for how to assemble an icebox cake, but the yield can really be adjusted to suit your needs!

2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
4 tablespoons Swerve Sweetener confectioners’ sugar (or regular confectioners’ sugar)
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 ground cloves
3 packages Pumpkin Spice Oreos (if you can’t find these, use Golden Oreos)

Note: Remember, to make a smaller cake or even personal icebox cakes, you can just reduce the amount of pumpkin spice whipped cream you make and the number of cookies you use. There are really no rules to icebox cakes except making sure that all the cookies get sandwiched between layers of cream!

Whip heavy cream in a chilled mixing bowl with chilled beaters to medium peaks. Add powdered sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, and beat to stiff peaks. Place 10-12 cookies on a plate and top with a large scoop of pumpkin whipped cream. Use an offset spatula to spread the cream out until it covers all the cookies. Keep layering cookies and cream until you’re happy with the height of your cake. Place in an airtight cake container (or cover with plastic wrap if you don’t mind things getting a little messy) and chill overnight.

      Chemo has left my voice with a range of about seven good notes so singing has become quieter for me, but I feel you pray twice when you sing, so singing I do! Appropriately, one of my favorite hymns is In The Garden. Can’t wait to try the icebox cake.

    It is hard for me to fathom church with no corporate worship. As a musically-inclined person, that would be tough for me. I have never experienced it, but doing church without worship would seem to me to be a religious lecture. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I’d have to get my worship fix somewhere else. Do they do anything corporately (like scripture reading or Nicene Creed)?

    Needless to say, I listen to A LOT of worship music. Right now, Whom Shall I Fear( by Chris Tomlin is really encouraging me.

    And what I’m learning? Comparison is the death of contentment.

      They have worship, Stephen, but the service I attend is the “expedited” service with just the sermon. In the regular service, they have music for worship and they do include a lectionary reading here and there. I don’t get hung up on worship style, but I admit the music they sing at the regular service doesn’t have the message I really want to worship with, so I don’t feel like it’s the place for me to engage in corporate worship the way I want to. The service I go to is, indeed, a lot like a religious lecture and discussion — actually, it’s a lot like Sunday School!

      The result is that while I worship every day, it’s not often in song lately, and it’s almost never corporate. It was a nice experience this weekend. I’m looking forward to going back to a more conventional church when I’m ready — hopefully with more perspective.

    Hi Julie 🙂
    Isn’t it interesting how the things from our childhood shape so much of what we do as adults! Thank you for sharing your heart! And I’m down with any recipe made with Oreos 🙂

    Love your story and singing aloud to Him is one of the best ways to praise him, in my opinion!

    I can relate to your story about lip-synching praise songs. I still do that sometimes. “Made Me Glad” ( is the song I listen to a lot these days; I feel that God is reminding me to rely more on him. Anyhow, I love this cake. It’s pumpkin spice overload in my head, and who doesn’t like that?
