This amazing and unique Colomba cake is studded with candied Sicilian Apricots and pearls of aromatic Modica chocolate (original chocolate from the ancient Aztec recipe) then finished with a delicious crunchy glaze and sprinkled with Hazelnuts. The cakes are incredibly light, moist and fragrant with true distinctive flavours. Stunning!
Colomba is a delightfully fragrant leavened cake shaped like a dove (Colomba in Italian), the symbol of peace.
These beautifully handwrapped Colomba cakes are quite simply the best we’ve ever tasted (and we’ve tried a lot!). They all enjoy an extraordinary fragrance, lightness and a moist texture you can only experience with cakes literally fresh from the oven.
They are made by the Fiasconaro brothers in Sicily, for generations a family owned artisan bakery. The 3 brothers who run the bakery now still rigorously uphold the local artisan traditions of their father and grandfather. This is slowfood at its best – each cake taking nearly 4 days to bake!
Such quality is almost matched by its stunning and elegant presentation. It really makes a memorable gift for any occasion.
