the recipe i use is

1 cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup drained ricotta cheese
1/4 cup powder sugar
finely chopped chocolate( add what you like)
vanilla to taste
Tb finely chopped candied orange peel
1 cup pastry cream

mix the cheeses together till smooth, add powdered sugar, add remaining ingredients except pastry cream.Fold in pastry cream

I add the pastry cream for more of a mouthfeel.. I got this recipe from a bakery i worked for and everyone loves this icon_smile.gif... if you ice the cake with whipped cream, its nice to have a ring of chopped pistascios on the bottom of the cake icon_smile.gif

I just had to give this a bump (from almost 4 years ago) it just sounds sooo good! I wonder what the perfect recipe for the pastry cream part would be? Any takes?

Martha Stewart has a great recipe for pastry cream on her site! I use it all the time.

cserwa - I was just planning to do a vanilla cake for a "Vanilla Cannoli Cake" and a chocolate cake for a "Chocolate Cannoli Cake." I was planning on adding a fun name to it like "Godfathers Cannoli Cake"

But I will "bump" this topic just in case anyone else has any good ideas. MacsMom would love this recipe above.

Theres a cannoli filling recipie here under the filling tab in recipies. i used it about a month ago and just didnt add the cherry because i was pairingn it with a vanilla cake. but it was fantastic really simple to make and got rave reviews! the base is a cream cheese ricotta base instead of the marscapone listed above so it probably will yield a much different flavor. if you try both let us know which one u prefer!

This is a recipe that always gets raves. It goes particularly well with a WASC or chocolate cake.

INGREDIENTS

2 Pkgs. (8oz. each) Cream cheese, softened
1 15 oz. carton Ricotta cheese
1 C. Powdered sugar
1 t. Vanilla
1/2 t. Almond extract
1 16 oz jar Maraschino cherries
1 C. Miniature chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and Ricotta until combined. Add powdered sugar and extracts. Drain cherries well, reserving 1 t. cherry juice.
Chop cherries. Stir chopped cherries, chocolate chips and reserved juice into Ricotta mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour until spreadable.



this is the recipie i used last time. not sure how to provide link so i just copy pasted it, but its on the site under fillings!

Candied orange peel is something you can buy, usually in your grocery store's baking section. It's usually wherever you buy candied cherries. If you were to make your own you'd have to do it in advance in order to candy them first. I get mine in a bulk food store when I'm buying my ingredients at Christmas.
