Italian Cassata Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This is essentially the same cake that my husband's father used to make. He was Italian and made them for family and friends on a regular basis. It was absolutely wonderful and so easy to follow. The Marsala wine makes the cake. I also saved a few cherries to decorate the top and perimeter of the cake as well. It turned out beautiful. I took it to a spaghetti dinner where it was a wonderful hit. Needless to say, we had none left to bring home.

This was okay, but I didn't care for the ricotta filling. I think it would taste better with cream cheese or something less grainy.

Very authentic cake. Ricotta is the traditional cheese to use and adds a special flavour and texture that you do not achieve with cream cheese. I added some extra Italian Glace fruit - cherries, Clementines and figs in the mix and also for decoration. Pistachios also added an extra crunch. You only need a small slice so this cake easily will feed 12 to 15 people. Great for a special occasion.

I loved this recipe! Very authentic. Everyone loved it at the Christmas party...even people who don't usually eat cake. I made my own pound cake as well. What a hit! Enjoy Italian Style...
