Everyone knows the best cannoli are filled on the spot. Unfortunately, the process can be difficult to follow and tough to replicate at home. To sort this tricky situation, Melbourne’s very first dedicated cannoli bar is offering take-home DIY kits. You can pipe delicious cannoli custard into a crispy shell, or directly into your mouth, whenever you desire.
Cannoli Bar opened its doors in 2018 when Italian cook and cannoli enthusiast Carlo Mellini realised his neighbourhood of Avalon Heights was severely lacking in cannoli accessibility. The bar rapidly gained popularity and is typically bustling with local activity. While cannoli kits were available around Christmas time to ensure families could enjoy their fill around the festive period while the bar was shut, during the pandemic this local business took some initiative to make their take-home kits available year-round.
Cannoli Bar is once again offering kits of 10 cannoli shells and an array of different custard flavours and toppings. These include a classic Sicilian ricotta mascarpone, a decadent Nutella flavoured filling and, if you like the best of both worlds, a vanilla and chocolate custard. The kits come with crunchy toppings like chopped nuts and chocolate chips, which you can put at the ends of your cannoli’s for that extra special crunch.
Cannoli Bar is offering free delivery for any orders outside their 10km radius, so this is a fantastic opportunity to bring a little bit of Italian flavour right to your doorstep. Call them on (03) 9337 7049 to order.
