Leave The Cake, Take The Cannoli

Massive apologies to the movie The Godfather for appropriating that line, but this next one fits the title to a tee! Renato Poliafito, who wrote the new cookbook Dolci, stopped by Tonia's Kitchen with his Cannoli Cake recipe. Essentially, it's all the flavors of a Cannoli, in a cake. Renato says it's a simple, rustic cake, with a ricotta cheese cream top. It's a single layer cake, that's cinnamon-based with chocolate chips and candied orange, and topped with pistachios. Renato promises there's not a single recipe, either simple or challenging in the book that you can't do, no matter your experience. Just as long as you read the recipe all the way through!
