No-Bake Cake Recipe With Just 4 Ingredients -- No Hot Oven Required!

no-bake graham cracker and whipped cream cake
In my family, the summer months are all about birthdays. Me, my sister, one of my brothers, and my dad -- we are all June and July babies. While it's a great time of year to celebrate, it can also be also be tough on the people putting together those celebrations. That's because birthdays mean one thing (in addition to saying hooray to passage of time) -- baking a cake. And nothing is quite so brutal as standing in front of a oven on a hot, hot day. 

That's where this killer 4 ingredient no-bake cake comes into play! Save yourself a trip to the grocery store, time in the kitchen, AND from having to turn that evil oven on! This cake is so good, and so easy, you might wish you had more summertime birthday friends. Even better, you might just start inventing reasons to eat cake everyday. Everyday = cake day.
