I found this cake on Bake or Break! It was my favourite childhood cake (and still is)! Technically called "Chocolate Wafter Icebox Cake," here is the "recipe." (although this cake structure is different than mine, I make it into a log type cake...)

4 cups heavy cream
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 & 1/2 packages Nabisco chocolate wafer cookies
Combine the cream, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whip until soft peaks form. Do not overmix. Place a cookie in the center of a plate that is at least 9 inches in diameter. Arrange 6 cookies around the center one, forming a circle. Spread about 3/4 cup of the cream mixture onto the cookies.Repeat layers, ending with the whipped cream. Garnish if desired with chocolate shavings, nuts, cocoa, etc. Refrigerate at least 5 hours or overnight.
