Refrigerator Cake or Ice-box Cake

Refrigerator Cake is the first “cake” that my daughters baked. It requires almost no cooking except for heating in a saucepan. The use of fruit cocktail makes it even more attractive to look at. The Refrigerator cake is also such a winning dessert that any kid would be proud to show off to their friends. Let your kid, niece or nephew try this out. Or even you, still a kid at heart.

    Kindly clear how many measurement of butter is needed. You said, I have to beat the butter with the egg yolks, then I have to put butter again once the mixture is cold. And yet, you only listed 2 tablespoons melted butter?

    @ patchy: you dont put butter in instruction #1. you only add it in instruction #4. this is a different version of crema de fruta.
