Love Italian rainbow cookies but don’t want the hassle of making them? Try this easy Italian rainbow cake that looks a tastes just like Italian rainbow cookies.
Bob’s mom makes the best Italian rainbow cookies I’ve ever had. What really sells me is that she makes half of them with white chocolate. Even though people argue that it is not real chocolate, white chocolate it is my favorite kind of chocolate. Unfortunately she does not share the recipe. But instead of attempting to come up with my own recipe for these cookies I cheated and made a layer cake version using boxed cake mix. When you can’t have the best, make it easy right? Fake it ’til you make it! I added almond extract, food coloring, and homemade white chocolate frosting to seal the deal. I could have used store bought frosting to make this cake even easier but I wanted white chocolate frosting, not regular chocolate. Feel free to go the store bought route if you’re not into white chocolate or substitute the white for regular chocolate in the recipe if you want to make it yourself.

What happens when you mix eggnog and hot chocolate? One amazing cake with two of your favorite winter beverages! Perfect for holiday parties.
Today is the Friday of the last weekend before Christmas. What are you doing this weekend? If I had to guess many of you will be baking cookies, attending holiday parties, and/or crazy enough to go shopping. I remember the last time I tried going to the mall the weekend before Christmas (and not to buy a present, just retail therapy with a friend and neglected to realize what weekend it was) and it took over an hour to get out of the parking lot. Insanity. Never again. I am however committing to the other two aforementioned tasks this weekend – getting covered in snow-like sugar while baking and then eating party food until my belly resembles Santa’s.
This pound cake embodies the two best wintry drinks: eggnog and hot chocolate. Both eggnog and hot chocolate mix are used in the making of this pound cake, which results in the perfect pound cake to appear at your next holiday party. It didn’t take long for it to be reduced to crumbs. Spike it with a little bit of rum if you dare.
P.S. Does anyone else see the face in the swirl in the pictures above? It looks like Bugs bunny with his ears slightly chopped off to me.
