The cannoli cake was a great dessert idea to serve. However, when I made the cake, I had a few things to fix about the cannoli filling.
There really wasn't very much flavor in the filling. The ricotta definitely needs to be pulsed in a food processor, or the filling will be clumpy. I added about 1/2-1 tsp. of lemon juice, and it brought out a lot of the flavor. I also added more cinnamon. I also added some more sugar, because the cream wasn't very sweet.
I wouldn't serve this to someone who is expecting a cannoli. It is reminiscent of the cannoli flavor, but not is quite a different dessert.
