I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of my recent trip,
Part 2 is filled with lots of delicious sweets I found on our travels.
The hardest part about buying sweets as take away in Italy, is to not rip the packaging open before you get back to where you are staying. It took me a few trips to realise that the only people eating as they walked were the tourists. Sweets purchased as take away are packaged so amazingly. I wish I had a photo to share however the package never stays un opened long enough for me to get a pic.
On one occasion my husband and I thought we would be really good and only share a pastry instead of having one each.We stood in line, waited patiently for our turn and orderd the fattest Sicillian cannoli we could see. The lady so lovingly placed it in a tray and proceeded to wrap it perfectly using a gold cardboard arch to buffer the wrap from the sweet. She then proceeded to tie a pretty bow around the package…meanwhile my husband is looking at me as if to say ‘make her stop’ lol.
We ran out that patisserie as fast as we could, stood by the doorway of the next shop and ripped the package open like two crazy people that had never been fed. We then split and ate the cannoli. (To this day I still swear he ate the bigger portion than me). After we ate the cannoli I remember coming to and noticing people staring at us, as I looked at my husband I saw his chin covered in icing sugar (imagining mine was the same) I swore I would never eat on the run in Italy again!
I thought I would share with you a little snippet of the sweets.
Part 3 will follow with pics of Sardegna and our stay at the most incredible farm stay
