Celebrate deliciously with these festive Birthday Cake Cannolis! The traditional ricotta filling has a Funfetti twist, lending a unique taste to these tubular treats.
  • 12 premade cannoli shells
  • 1 container (approx. 1 & ½ cups) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup dry Funfetti cake mix
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp EACH vanilla and butter extract
  • About ⅓ cup miniature chocolate chips
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  1. First, use some bakers twine or ribbon to tie small bows around each cannoli shell, careful not to crack the delicate shell. Set the shells aside. Do this only if you want the cannolis to look cute. If you're just going to stuff your face, obviously twine is just another obstacle for you to overcome before scarfing them down. Omit as needed.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, dry Funfetti cake mix and powdered sugar with a handheld electric mixer until creamy. Add in the extracts to combine.
  3. Gently spoon the ricotta filling into a piping bag attached with an open star tip (I used Wilton 4B). Pipe the ricotta mixture into the cannoli shells. Sprinkle the ends of the cannoli with the mini chocolate chips and sprinkles. Stack & serve immediately.
