Cortona Cake, the signature Cake of Pasticceria Vannelli
Born in the mind and the heart of Luciano Vannelli, the Cortona Cake is the great speciality of Vannelli pasticceria.
A base of soft and elaborated sponge-cake, filled with blackberry cream and dark chocolate, enchantingly mixed lightly with “Vin Santo”. The flower and the fruit scents of Cortona Cake countryside and the musk of the mountains that the icing of the cake releases are a well-guarded secret. The decoration on the cake is a daisy, in honour of our saint and the yellow, green and brown pattern is typical of the “cocci Cortonesi”
The old picture on the wrapping represents the tower bell of S. Agostino’s church and the staircase of the S.Benedetto church, one of the most picturesque corners of the historical centre, it is there where the pasticceria Vannelli was born with its first workshop. The Cortona cake was conceived to spread the flavours and colours of this town of the Tuscany around the world.
It is a souvenir of this land for tourists and original gift for friends and relatives
