Growing up in an Italian family, a holiday or gathering was not complete without a box of Italian pastries and the blessed cannoli! YUM!
I have always wanted to create a cupcake that tastes like a cannoli. This cake is the closest I have ever come! White almond cake with hints of cinnamon and orange zest with a ricotta and mascarpone cheese frosting. I swirled in mini chocolate chips and some cinnamon and almond extract. I topped the cupcake with pieces of broken cannoli shell.
