How Long is Icebox Cake Good?

Icebox cakes will stay good in the refrigerator for about 3 days. Honestly, this cake is so good, it might not last that long.

Can I Freeze Icebox Cake?

You can easily freeze an icebox cake. You will want to store it in the refrigerator for the first 24 hours. This lets the flavors combine well and then moisten the graham crackers. This brings the cake together and creates the cake like texture. You can then move the cake to freezer. Make sure that it is covered well.
