diane's cassata cake
a recipe by
My friend Diane shared this recipe with me over 30 years ago. It is especially delicious during the warmer months but you can certainly eat it anytime. This is a no bake type of dessert that is rich and delicious. I often make it for company and everyone loves it. I hope you do too. This is best made three days ahead of time for the flavors to blend which makes it especially nice when you are having company because you can focus on the main meal without worrying about the dessert.
