On the Menu: Cannoli Cake




This is one of my go to desserts! I made it recently for our staff Christmas Party and everyone loved it!! (Especially the guys!) It really is delicious!!

  • 1 Box White Cake Mix, plus ingredients on the cake mix box
  • 1 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups marscarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


Bake white cake according to instructions on the box for a 9×13 pan. IĀ use my red one so you can’t see inside the dish like you can with a clear one. The cake will stay in this pan, so it will be the one you are serving from.

Remove the cake from oven and poke holes in it with a straw. (Feel free to eat the cake that gets poked up into the straw.)

Open the can of sweetened condensed milk and save 1/2 a cup of it for later. Pour the rest over the cake, filling in the holes as best you can.

Place the cake in the fridge for 1 hour.

After cake has cooled for an hour in the fridge, in a mixer bowl mix together Vanilla Extract, Marscarpone Cheese and Ricotta cheese.

Add Cinnamon and powdered sugar, mix together well.

Add the 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk to the mixture and mix well.


Spread the cannoli icing over the cake. (The consistency is much more like cannoli filling than traditional icing, if you would like it a little thicker, add more powdered sugar.)

Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips over the top.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. ENJOY!!!
