We wouldn’t be able to make a very good ice cream cake without using the freezer. Have you ever wondered how food was stored before everyone had a refrigerator? Before the electric refrigerator and freezer were invented in the 1920s, people had iceboxes in their homes to keep food cold. Iceboxes were metal-lined cabinets with a compartment that held a large chunk of ice that cooled food in other compartments. Ice was often delivered daily to homes so everyone could keep their iceboxes cool!
