One of my favorite childhood activities was when my parents would take us to dinner at The Spaghetti Factory. Dinner always ended with a scoop of spumoni ice cream in a cold metal dish. I had no idea what spumoni was at the time, but I remember thinking it was such a unique flavor.
Cupcake Project recently posted a recipe for Spumoni Cupcakes and the memories instantly came flooding back. Here's what she does to imitate this well-known Italian dessert.
"My spumoni cupcakes begin with pistachio cake made with pistachio oil and loaded with finely chopped nuts, filled with cherry jam, frosted with chocolate cream cheese frosting, and topped with chopped pistachios and a maraschino cherry."
