Hello all! I have a very special cake request (from my husband!) It's for his birthday this Friday, and he's asking for a Cannoli cake "with no cake in it". A year or so ago someone from his work had one from a local bakery and my husband loved it. It sounds like cannoli filling layered in between "flaky layers" [im guessing phylo??] The bakery can make it for $30, but being a baker I feel a little guilty buying it, plus I think I can prob make it and it would be more meaningful- but I can find NOTHING online or anywhere for that matter like a recipe.
I saw a few cannoli cheesecakes, but mostly everything else calls for actual cake layers. I called the bakery and they said they do not use cake. So.. anyone have any ideas or if I'm really super lucky, recipes?
Any help would be great, thanks!!!!
It's probably puff pastry, phyllo gets very brittle.
This looks close to what you need:
Instead of the custard, just make cannoli cream with the chocolate chips instead. But otherwise I think the recipe tells you how to make it.
I can always count on Cake Central. That looks great, Thanks so much I am going to try it!!
You can also try a cake called St. Honore Cake. It's phyllo and custard inside.
