Goldbelly - Carlo's Bakery

I love traveling and trying foods from all over the place. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened as much as I would like over the past year. Covid 'n such.

Instead of traveling to these places I want to try, I had the idea to bring them to me. Have you heard of Goldbelly? I don't know about you, but I'm getting targeted ads for it like nobody's business. It's a website that offers specialty foods from all over the country that you can get mailed to you - for a premium.

But it's a cool option if you've always wanted to try real Chicago-style pizza or a New York-style bagel, etc. I wanted to find something that was new to me and that was also interactive for date night - but takes no real skill. Because I have no real cooking skills to speak of.

So, we ultimately decided on ordering a cannoli kit from Carlo's Bakery. "Buddy and the Carlo's Bakery team star in TLC's hit series, "Cake Boss," and in more publications and spin-off series than we could list. Buddy’s cake design was voted by The Today Show's viewers as the best cake in America," as per the website.

So we were shipped a dozen cannoli shells with two piping bags full of icing and went to town. I tried a sort of swirl technique, where as RL did this mooshing thing that I think worked better.

And, they were very tasty. There was no actual cooking or baking involved, so I couldn't mess it up fortunately. And it was fun to make them on our own. Bu I sure do miss that sort of "authentic" feeling of being there. But for now, this will do.
