Snackshot of the Day: Cassata
The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.
Today's Snackshot is of cassata. Cassata is a traditional Italian cake made with ricotta cheese and candied fruits. The cake is moistened with fruit juice, and that, plus the ricotta and a filling similar to cannoli cream, is all coated in marzipan. The cakes are then decorated with candied fruits, often various citrus fruits and cherries.
