"The Colomba Cake is the quintessential Italian Easter Cake." This fragrant, fruit- studded, dove-shaped cake 'Colomba' means 'dove' in Italian is an Italian rite of spring. The dove-shaped symbolizes the sign of peace and renewal. "No traditional/Italian Easter meal would be without one."
Our Colomba Cake is made in our own bakery and is considered by many to be one of the finest. The highly specialized procedure involved in making this cake is measured in days, not hours. A two-day production is required before these beautiful bread like cakes are ready to bake. This natural rising cake is made from a mother starter and fermented over two days. It is this natural fermentation, which makes possible the miraculous keeping qualities of this soft, sweet cake and make it one of the triumphs of the Italian bakers art.
