dessertsdessertsThe dessert is arguably the most fun and delicious part of a meal and is something that will keep people around. At Saldamarco’s, you will find a selection of incredible desserts. Italian desserts range from cakes, cookies, and other bakery treats to gelato. Any bakery worth its salt will have a good variety of these fresh treats.

One particularly popular, Italian dessert is Tiramisu. Tiramisu is a more modern Italian dessert which seems to have been invented in the 1980s. It is made by taking lady finger biscuits, dipping them in strong coffee or rum, and then layering them with a mixture of mascarpone cheese, egg yolk, and sugar, then topped with cocoa. Another popular and very iconic Italian dessert is Cannoli. In Italian, the word means “little tubes.” That description is rather accurate as Cannoli are simply a sort of dough formed into an oval and fried, which are then filled with a sweet, creamy mixture or a simple custard. Freshness is especially important in this dessert.

Whether you’re indulging your sweet tooth or preparing a special after-dinner treat for yourself and your family and friends, the classic Italian desserts are a good choice. When they are fresh enough, there is very little that can compare to a properly-prepared Cannoli or Tiramisu.
