I was wondering if anyone had a good recipe or direction for one of these types of cakes?  My sister is asking me to make a cake like this for the christening of my Nephew/god son to be.  It isn’t until May…so I would like to get a trial run going.

Use a search engine, like Google, and type in cannoli recipe epicurious.  You will find one there—their recipe looks really good.  Let us know how it turns out.

Are you talking about the traditional Italian cassata cake? If so, Nick Malgieri has a recipe in his book “A Baker’s Tour.” Vincent Schiavelli also has a recipe in his book, “Bruculinu, America.”

When I look up that Cassata Cake, it doesn’t look like the cake that I remember…It was more of a pastry flake in between rather than cake layers.

Are you talking about a Napoleon, then? (The Italian name is Neopolitan). There is a recipe in Rose’s “Pie & Pastry Bible.”

As Kathleen said, there are all kinds of recipes available for this cake through google. This site can usually be trusted: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Sponge-Cake-with-Fancy-Cream-Cannoli-Filling

I’m not familiar with the cake myself - just the Italian cannoli pastries which use the same or similar filling. Yum!
