Spumoni Ice Cream Cake with Mascarpone Whipped Cream (a.k.a. The Rach)
In honor of her big birthday on August 25, we wanted to make a cake as awesome as our namesake! We give you the Rach: an Italian extravaganza with layers of chocolate–olive oil cake and cherry and Sicilian pistachio gelato (but ice cream works, too) crowned with a cloud of Luxardo cherry–topped mascarpone whipped cream. It's a heck of a lot of fun, just like the woman herself. Happy (Almost) Birthday, Rach!
