cassata

Sicily's famous cake

Cassata is a very rich, very fancy sponge cake, filled or layered with ricotta and artistically frosted with marzipan in elaborate forms and colours. Different recipes involve lemon, chocolate, almonds or candied fruits (and around Naples 'cassata' means a flavour of ice cream with candied fruits in it)
