Could you close me in that shop for a night?

Halcyon said...

These are pretty, but not tempting to me. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, unless it's chocolate! :)

JM said...

I would be in paradise here too, not only on cheese land! :-)

Yummy! Looks both pretty AND tasty!:)

Dina said...

So that's what cassata is!
I remember vendors walking the beaches near Tel Aviv with a box slung over their shoulder, shouting "Cassata, cassata!" In Hebrew it referred to ice cream bars, I'm pretty sure.
I live your version better, so pretty.

VP said...

Dina - You are right. That is why we specify cassata siciliana: cassata is the ice cream...

Luis Gomez said...

Looks delicious VP. I never had cassata.

Kate said...

Each one looks like something I would like to taste. Beautiful photos for some delectable food to try.

Dina said...

OK, good! I'm glad we have an Italian word in Hebrew.
