After getting some feedback about my cannoli recipe I dug around a bit more to find out a bit more about the famous Cannoli! Turns out there are hundreds if not thousands of different pastry recipes!

Here is one using Marsala and a broom shaft! Thanks for the feedback everyone:)

This is the size of the cutter I am going to use. 95mm and the size of the broom I cut up 25mm
