Banana Graham Cracker Cake (no bake)

This is one of the most delicious and easiest no bake cakes you could ever make. It's always a hit wherever I take it.

1. Place a layer of whole (not crushed) graham cracker on the bottom of a 13 x 9 cake pan
2. Add a layer of sliced (long ways) bananas over the graham cracker

3. Alternate these two layers ending with graham cracker. I usually only end up with two or three layers.

4. Spread a butter cream icing over the top layer generously. Refrigerate over night.

Butter cream icing

1/2 c. solid vegetable shortening
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine softened (1 c. of butter or margarine can be used if you'd rather not use the shortening
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 c. sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
2 tbs. milk

In large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Note: Your cake will slice as nicely as any other cake would
