le torte siciliane

The holidays never end! Whether it's a birthday, a graduation, an anniversary, there is always something worth getting together and toasting for.

In every self-respecting celebration there is an element that can never be missing:the cake!Minimal, modern, traditional, tiered, bare, simple or decorated: whatever it is, it is the absolute protagonist of the moment to celebrate.

In our laboratory every day we carefully prepare each cake, giving shape and flavor to the wishes that are expressed. For those who love traditional cakes, the queen is thereSicilian cassata, beautiful to look at with the decorations ofcandied fruit, based onsheep ricotta as per an ancient recipe from Catania.

Among the typical ingredients of the island, the king is certainly thepistachio, protagonist of thePistanut:the delicious cake entirely covered with pistachio grains has a heart in which several layers of soft cake sacher alternate with the pistachio cremino. Love at first taste!

Another historical sweet of Sicilian origins is theSavoy cake, created to celebrate the annexation of Sicily to the Kingdom of Italy: Piedmontese hazelnuts are among the ingredients, in honor of the House of Savoy. Under the glossy icing each slice reveals the alternation between layers of biscuit and soft cream, made with three types ofchocolate and hazelnuts. A real pleasure for cocoa lovers!

For those who love genuine flavors, those reminiscent of grandmothers' homemade cakes, theDelight Cake is the dessert made fromalmonds which celebrates the refined elegance and traditional Sicilian pastry taste.

The Ottagono family cannot miss the classics - such as theMillefeuille, Fedora and tarts with fresh fruit - and the must-have cakes of the moment, such asTart Cake or theDrip Cake, as well as a menu dedicated tomodern cakes. Choose your favorite: every sweet wish is an order!
