Italian Cream Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Candy and cake combine for a cake made to impress. Every inch of this cake is edible. Candy clay decorations are as easy as working with modeling clay and they’re sweet tasting. Make them in advance, so decorating the cake is less stressful at the last minute.

Recipes

Italian Cream Cake

A traditional cake “from the old country,” this cake, chock full of coconut and nuts, remains a family favorite for many.

Festive Cherry Almond Chip Biscotti

Biscotti are traditional Italian biscuits (cookies) that have been updated in recent years with different flavor combinations and often are decorated for a more festive look. They are first baked as a loaf, cut into their signature oblong strips, then baked a second time to dry them out and add the crunch.
