Rainbows and sunshine; who doesn’t need a little of that especially on gloomy winter days? This boozy Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake is happiness in a cake, both visually pleasing and bursting with flavour. It also hits the mark for St. Patricks Day or a special someone’s birthday. BONUS.

My son has been begging for me to make him anything and everything rainbow. He’s obsessed. His birthday is only a couple short days after St. Patricks Day so it’s the perfect reason for me to bring a smile to his face.

Don’t worry, I made a smaller kid-friendly version free of alcohol. But for the adults, a slice of this boozy version of Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake is fun too.

Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake – All the Heart Eyes

I admit rainbows make me happy; it’s not just my son. Especially when it’s this grown-up version. Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake is layered in moist chocolate, with a hint of Baileys Irish Cream, and smooth and creamy vanilla buttercream icing. Eating this cake is only part of the fun.

To construct the layers, ensure the cakes are completely cooled before attempting to layer and frost the cake. A quick layer of dirty icing makes smoothy on the coloured icing easier and don’t worry if the lines aren’t straight, the look makes for a slight ombre effect. Topped with whipped cream and sprinkles, I bet you can’t stop at just one slice of this boozy Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake.

Depending on the slice size, this Baileys Chocolate Rainbow Cake should serve 6-8 and bring a little smile to those you share this dessert with.

  1. Where is the cake and icing recipe!?

  2. Hi Stacey, my son has also been begging me for a chocolate cake with rainbow frosting! Your cake looks lovely and I’d love to give it a shot, but I don’t see the recipe. Am I missing something? Do you have the non-alcoholic, kid-friendly version?
