One of my favorite desserts in the world are fruit pizzas! A cookie dough crust, cream cheese icing, topped with fruit- does it really get any better than that?! One of the cool things about fruit pizza is that you can be so creative with them! You can make swirls, stripes or beautiful mosaic designs with the fruit to give it a little bit of pizzazz. But I bet you never tried stacking them to make a cake! And thats why I’m here! 😉
Honestly when I thought of the idea of stacking all the layers together I remember thinking why the heck have I never done this/seen anyone do this before?! It’s such a simple idea and such a simple recipe, but stacking the layers really makes a huge impact and gives any celebration that WOW factor! The cool thing is, whether you have made a fruit pizza before or not, by the end of this tutorial you will be a champ at making a fruit pizza cake! And to top it off, it will be rainbow?! Sold.
Rainbow Fruit Pizza Cake
– 2 packages Sugar Cookie Dough
– 1 cup Whipped Cream Cheese
– 1 cup Marshmallow Fluff
– 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
– 1 case of Strawberries
– 1 Orange
– 1 Banana
– 2 Kiwis
– 1 case of Blueberries
1.) Divide each pre-made sugar cookie package in 1/3. This will yield 6 identical sections. Roll each section into a ball.
2.) Once you have 6 cookie balls rolled out, it’s time to dye them individually. (If you want yours to look like mine, dye them like this: 1 red/pink, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 neon green, 1 neon blue, 1 purple) To dye them, just drop a few drops of food dye directly on the dough and knead the dye throughout. Be sure to wash your hands between each cookie ball or it could lead to color bleeding and ruin your colors.
3.) Spread out cookie dough evenly on a baking sheet, but allow for space in between for the cookies to expand. I spread my cookies out approximately to the size of a 6” cake. I used 2 separate baking sheets, with 3 cookies per sheet.
4.) Once cookies are baked, trim any imperfections from the edges. Set aside to cool.
5.) Combine equal parts whipped cream cheese and marshmallow fluff in a bowl. Add the vanilla extract. Blend together for 2 minutes or until completely mixed together. Set aside.
6.) For this to be a rainbow fruit pizza cake you need rainbow fruits! I used strawberries (red), oranges(orange), bananas (yellow), kiwi (green), and blueberries (blue). Slice each fruit up and set aside.
7.) Now it’s time to layer everything together. On a plate or cake stand, start by laying your bottom-most cookie (purple). Spread the icing on top of the cookie (the more the yummier). Once icing is evenly spread, top with blueberries. Add a dollop more of icing directly in the center of the blueberries to help hold its position when stacking layers. Place next cookie color in order. Continue this step until completion of cake.
8.) Layers will be in this order from bottom to top:
• Purple Cookie – Blueberries (Bottom layer)
• Blue Cookie – Kiwi
• Green Cookie – Bananas
• Yellow Cookie – Oranges
• Orange Cookie – Strawberries
• Red Cookie – Icing and whatever you would like to top it off with (Top layer)
9.) Cool until ready to serve.
