Cannoli Cake Recipe

Cannoli is a traditional Italian pastry, fried and filled with a sweet cheese filling that has undertones of orange and vanilla. Add chocolate chips to the filling and around the cake and voila! Cannoli cake perfection for a delicious summer dessert.

The first time I bit into a cannoli, I knew the lightly sweet flavor profile would be the perfect cake filling. Instead of traditional ricotta cheese, I prefer to use mascarpone cheese as it is a thicker cheese that does not require draining.

I had Donna, my business partner, taste test. She lived in Cleveland’s Little Italy for 3 years and had many cannoli’s from the famous Presti’s Bakery. She gave this Cannoli Cake a big thumb’s up. I hope you love it as much as she did.

    This cake turned out so delicious! The crumb was tender and light. The texture of the buttercream was delightful, too! It was my first time trying any buttercream other than American Buttercream. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes!
