Since Im here, I just thought of something I wanted to ask you guys.

If you have made cannoli's before, is it pretty easy to make the shells at home, or really not worth it? Do you prefer the pre-packaged shells? I didnt realize they were fried until the other day. That kind of seems messy, but I dont think Ive ever had a fresh cannoli shell so if its good Ill do it. Also do you know how long the shells keep?

I make my own. They are very easy. I don't know how long they keep as I use them within days.

The bakery I work at gets them in already fried in a big box and we just bake them for about 10 minutes. They seem to keep forever if you have them in an airtight container.Not sure about homemade since store bought ones always have some sort of shelf life extender in them.

Is there something I can add that you know of to extend the life? I would love to be able to make these. I think Ill go for it. I didnt buy the cannoli forms the other day because I was skeptical, but now I wish I had. Its 60 minutes just to get to the closest cake store. icon_sad.gif

Thanks guys! I appreciate the response.
