Summertime means hot afternoons spent in the pool or trying to escape the heat. This Red Fruit Ice Cream Cake is a refreshingly cold treat that will cool you right down. No baking required for this ice cream cake, so you can leave the oven off. The crust for this cake is a combination of spiced cookies, coconut, cinnamon and butter that requires no baking. The raspberry mousse filling is made from a combination of egg whites, sugar, vanilla, raspberries and fresh lemon juice. Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. Decorate with cherries or other fresh red fruits.
