Meyer Lemon Thyme Icebox Cake Recipe

This lovely (and easy!) Meyer Lemon Thyme Icebox Cake is the perfect celebration cake with no baking required!

Meyer Lemon and Thyme Icebox Cake Recipe

Recently I was contacted by KitchenAid to participate in a recipe challenge utilizing our Side-by-Side Counter-Depth refrigerator by creating a springtime no-bake cake. The formal challenge: Elevate a No-Bake Cake

Honestly, my first thought was “a recipe challenge with a refrigerator?” A refrigerator is a refrigerator. It’s not really something I consider as a tool for cooking. But the more I thought about it, I realized that we probably depend on our refrigerator for our meals more than anything else. If the oven or stove breaks we can still get by until it’s repaired, but the refrigerator is essential to keeping the bulk of what we eat fresh and safe. Plus, on a regular daily basis we eat smoothies and yogurt, so a reliable refrigerator is a must. And prepping meals ahead (which I like to do whenever possible) would be pretty near impossible without being able to depend on a refrigerator. Basically, our refrigerator is the busiest appliance in our kitchen. Plus, I love the simple streamlined styling and the many features it offers, like the ExtendFresh™ Plus Temperature Management System, which keeps the temperature just right so that food keeps its taste and texture. Or the AquaSense™ In-Door-Ice® ice dispensing system, which helps free up freezer space with an ice bucket which is located in the door, another fun perk of the In-Door Ice and Water dispenser system is how it shows the amount of ounces being dispensed, which helps us be more aware of our daily water intake. Finally, our refrigerator also has the AquaSense™ Base-Grille Filtration System, which uses PuR® filtration to reduce water impurities and saves storage space. The counter-depth of the refrigerator works great too. It gives our kitchen a more streamlined look and makes for a better traffic flow in the busy space.

Our KitchenAid® refrigerator has been a dependable, well-used appliance over the years and there is a newer, updated model now available. We’ve been quite pleased with the purchase, AND the good stuff it has kept fresh and cold. It’s one cool appliance.

Back to the KitchenAid® challenge: Elevate a No-Bake Cake that is seasonally relevant.  Seasonally relevant … hmmm … bright, fresh, springtime flavors come to mind, like lemons, and thyme. So I gathered my favorite cake plate, a bunch of Meyer lemons, some pre-made vanilla cookies, a few other basic ingredients, and began to make a plan.

Meyer Lemon and Thyme

The cake should be simple to make, but still a showstopper—an impressive cake filled with loveliness and flavor, reminiscent of summertime, when the living is easy and sweetness abounds. But the best part? No baking required.

After checking the refrigerator to make space, and shifting things around a bit to make room for a new temporary occupant, I moved on to some basic mixing. Heavy cream was whipped up with fresh thyme and Meyer lemon zest, then folded into cream cheese that had been whipped with honey and lemon juice to create a smooth and fluffy filling. So aromatic too!

The cake assembly began with a layer of cookies on a cake plate.

Followed by a layer of the whipped cream cheese filling.

Then another layer of cookies, and so on until the desired height is reached.


I have to admit it was quite fun building this cake—like legos for adults, only edible. And super duper easy too! The top was garnished with Candied Lemon Slices, and more fresh thyme.

What a perfect for any spring/summertime occasion, from baby showers and Easter lunch, to Mother’s Day and barbecues. The flavor is astounding, but not overwhelming. Meyer lemons, thyme and honey are such a heavenly combination. It’s lightness and happiness on a fork!

A few recipe notes:

The whipped cream cheese filling can be made a couple of days ahead, then covered and refrigerated until ready to assemble cake.

Any thin vanilla or lemon cookies may be substituted. I used a favorite Moravian lemon cookie found at a local grocer. A thinner cookie will work better as it is easier for layering evenly, and absorbs moisture to soften nicely for slicing and serving. Vanilla wafers, and those inexpensive butter cookies would work well too (the ones we had as kids shaped liked flowers with holes in the center that we wore as rings … ya know, those?). Just be sure to adjust amounts accordingly. The recipe below is based on the very thin 2-inch Moravian cookie size.

Powdered confectioners sugar may be substituted for honey. Additional 1-2 tablespoons of cream may be needed to create a smooth consistency.

Edible Candied Lemon Slices are wonderful as a garnish for this cake. As with the whipped cream cheese filling, they can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until needed for garnish.

If fresh thyme isn’t handy, substitute dried. Use 1/3 of the amount if using dried.

    I don’t have a no-bake dessert recipe, but I’m intrigued by this lemon cake. My mother loves everything lemon, and I bet this cake will be a hit for her birthday next week!

    Beautiful, Amy. WOW. Almost too pretty to eat. This week I made no-bake cookies and popped them into our KA fridge! :) I’d have to look through my mom’s church cookbook for my favorite “real” dessert though.:)

  6. 11

    Patty says

    This recipe looks wonderful, but honestly, I’m a little afraid of that much thyme in a cake! Amy, is it crucial, or is there a substitute for it?

    • 12


      Hello Patty,

      The recipe calls for fresh thyme, not dried. If using dried, the amount will need to be reduced. I think most say to use 3 times the amount of fresh herbs versus dried. So if using dried thyme in this recipe, use only 2 teaspoons.

      • 13

        Patty says

        I understand that part, I’m just not sure about using thyme in a sweet dish. I’ve only used it in savory applications. Try anything once, right?!

  7. 20


    Wow, that is one of the pretty cake. I love making & eating trifle cakes, loaded with fruit and creamy goodness.

    Kim Goodlett says

    I have made for years an icebox limeade pie. Ingredients are graham cracker crust, limeade, sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip. It is easy and delicious!

    Absolutely stunning! I usually love anything with peanut butter and chocolate, but lemon is second favorite.

  10. 24


    AMY! Oh my gosh….this is the most gorgeous cake! Love it! (And I had forgotten about those flower “ring” cookies.) ;)

    Favorite no-bake…Tiramisu.

    PS…I have fridge envy. ♥

    This looks absolutely beautiful! I am such a huge fan of Meyer Lemons and Thyme. I just posted a cookie recipe using the exact same flavors today… when I saw your post I just had to stop by :). These pictures look so, so stunning. Wish I could dive right in!

    STUNNINGLY gorgeous Amy!

    My favorite no-bake would be a peanut butter pie!!

    And I’m with Bridget…I have fridge envy too!!

    Robin {Mom Foodie} says

    This is stunning. I may have to make one myself with some lemon thyme from my garden. I’ll have to wait a few weeks though. A late cold snap did some damage to many of my herbs.

    … and I agree about the better texture & freshness of foods in a Kitchenaid Fridge. We are still in renovation mode here, so the water/ice is not hooked up to ours yet, but my produce is lasting far better than in the previous one.

    What no-bake desserts are your favorites for prepping ahead and refrigerating until party time? Or is there one you’d like to try? Do tell!

    My favourite refrigerator recipe is strawberry jello pie. Graham cracker crust filled with strawberry jello, and then fresh sliced strawberries placed in the jello in a pleasing pattern. It’s healthy, light, and spring time-y.

    Peggy Stenglein says

    We make a spin off of a dessert my hubby’s mother makes, we call it Stenglein Surprise. Mine is pound cake cut into squares layered with chocolate pudding/whipped topping mix, Hersey’s Chocolate Syrup, and Oreo’s, and a layer in there also of plain whipped topping. My m-i-l adds toffee peices instead of the Oreo’s but we like the Oreo’s! It’s a wonderful dessert!!

    Amanda says

    This looks incredible! I’m wondering if I can leave work right now and go home to make it.

    My favorite no bake is probably my mothers “chocolate cream pie” — a box of instant chocolate pudding, a tub of whipped topping, and a graham cracker crust. I could eat the entire thing myself.

    Homemade ice cream! Or, in the case of my dairy-free husband, coconut milk “ice cream”. I love the flavor and texture, and I don’t mind that it is softer (and much easier to serve!) than store-bought ice cream. Plus, we can make any flavor we want!

    Just found this after looking at a different recipe here. This looks gorgeous and sounds really tasty. Will be fun to give it a try with my granddaughter sometime soon.

    Our favorite family recipe is a lemon frozen pie made with evaporated milk. Really quick to throw together. Back in the day we used ice cube trays because of the small freezers we had, now I use a cake pan:

    Lemon Cream Freeze

    1 (14.5 oz.) can evaporated milk
    1/2 c. lemon juice (preferably fresh)
    3/4 c. sugar
    dash of salt
    2 tsp. grated lemon zest

    Pour milk into ice cube tray (or similar container) and freeze until it gets icy around the edges. Dump into a cold bowl, add lemon juice, and beat until thick. Add sugar and salt gradually, then rind, beating until stiff and fluffy, like whipped cream. Return to ice cube tray and freeze until firm.

  104. 200

    Tess says

    I made it! It’s not as pretty as yours but still impressive. I used mascarpone and lemon curd (instead of cream cheese, lemon juice and honey) and added fresh blueberries to each layer. Thank you for your lovely recipe.
