Italian Christmas Cake
1 yellow cake mix
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 plain chocolate bars, chopped in small pieces
2 lbs. Ricotta cheese
2 tbsp. honey
1 pint heavy cream, whipped
Prepare cake mix as directed on package and bake in two cake pans.
Beat the remaining ingredients together, reserving 3/4 of the whipped cream.
Cut each cake layer into 2 layers for a total of 4 layers. Spread filling between each layer, spreading remaining filling over top of cake.
Frost entire cake with the reserved whipped cream. Garnish with chopped nuts, maraschino cherries, chocolate sprinkles – however you prefer – or leave plain.
