In Italy, it’s traditional to make sweet cakes in the area of Palermo, Sicily. These sweet cakes are commonly known as Cassata and consist of round sponge cake moistened with fruit juices or liqueur and layered with ricotta cheese, candied peel, and a chocolate or vanilla filling similar to cannoli cream. Each cake is then meticulously covered with a shell of marzipan, pink and green pastel colored icing, and decorative designs. The cassata is topped with candied fruit depicting cherries and slices of citrus fruit, a very common characteristic of Sicily.

Without hours of planning and preparation, none of these cakes would taste or look as absolutely stunning as they are.  Come down to this local bakery near you and pick up a cake that will not only show your good taste, but put a smile on the face of each person who tastes such delight.
