I love all things rainbow. And food in rainbow colors is even better. This festive sugar cookie cake will make everyone smile for so many reasons.
Reason #1: It's basically a big sugar cookie. Reason #2: It's a rainbow. Reason #3: It's got everyone's favorite holiday treat — candy canes — on top.
Crushing candy canes is also pretty darn therapeutic.
And for the type A personalities, you can make it symmetrical. Create a circle template by tracing the bottom of your cake pan. Using a good old ruler, draw 8 equal "pie" slices. Cut out 1 of the pie slices, and discard it. Place the round template on top of your cookie cake, and fill in the empty pie slice with your crushed candy cane. Rotate and repeat until the entire cake is filled in.
Or you can make whatever design you like. You can even just sprinkle the crushed candy canes randomly over the cookie cake. It will still be a rainbow and just as delicious! Bring it to your next holiday party, and get ready for all the oohs and aahs.
This cookie cake uses a vanilla boxed cake mix and vanilla buttercream frosting, but you can mix and match with your favorite cake and frosting flavors. If you don't want to take the time to evenly spread the crushed candy cane into equal-size "slices" on top, then you can just sprinkle them all over. It will still make for a fun holiday treat.
