I loved my mammaw's ice box cakes, alas she didn't have a recipe and she cannot remember hers now.
If you could list some of them, that would be wonderful. Just the names to see what you have.

Here you go...
Chocolate Whipped Cream Cake
5 tbsp Cocoa
1/3 cup powdered sugar
About 1 1/2 tbsp hot water
1 cup cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 layers of Sponge, Angel or white cake

Combine sugar, enough hot water and sugar to make a smooth paste.
Then add the cream and beat the mixture with egg beater until it is the consistency of whipped cream. Add the vanilla and spread between and on top of layers of the cake. Serves 6.

I'll have to check and see what I have in my files along these lines.

Somewhere, I have a copy of the 1938 second-edition printing of the 1931 "Household Searchlight" cookbook. I think it was a collection of recipes printed in a magazine way-back-when.
