The New Statement Dessert

on June 23, 2014


Forget about croquembouche or a macaron tower, a new statement dessert has arrived in town and it’s the bomb!!
The newest craze to hit town is the Cannoli Tower. The Cannoli Tower has been taken to a new level by Sam Campisi at The Cake Man – Lane Cove.  Sam takes his delicious cannoli and lovingly builds a tower with dark chocolate and succulent strawberries.

How good are they? Well at a recent function the most dangerous place was standing in front of the Cannoli Tower as people scrambled to get in on the action. At the end of the day they were just crumbs!!

Not only does the Cannoli Tower look visually stunning but it tastes damn good. So what is a Cannoli? A cannoli is a fried pasty filled with a delicious filling of either ricotta or custard with some choc or glace fruit sprinkled into the mixture. One of Sam’s secrets is that the Cannoli is made with the freshest ricotta Sam can source.


For 36 years, Sam the Cake Man has been a baker.  He started his training at the prestigious Charleroi in Belgium.  He is a man of many talents – he can speak three languages and of course the language of cakes. 

Sam relocated from Europe to Australia and has worked in a few different bakeries.  At one bakery his apprentice was Adriano Zumbo!! 



So next time you need a dessert for that big occasion, why not try a Cannoli Tower!!!

P. S Did you know that the plural form of Cannoli does not have an ‘s’; cannolo is the singular). For the purpose of this blog we have used the more familiar Cannoli.
