The Daring Bakers November 2009 Challenge: CANNOLI
November is my second challenge and I was just counting the hours on the day it would be revealed! ;-)
When I opened the forum I read in the topic line: "sorry all, we are not baking this month..." and for a moment this month's host Lisa Michele had me fooled. I really thought "oh no, and what now, I was so looking forward to it", haha, great way to start a topic and to get some vivid pupils, Lisa ;-)
But the challenge of the month, deepfrying cannoli, wasn't a disappointment at all!! I had never made cannoli before, I don't think I would ever have tried it if it wasn't for this month's challenge.
It looks rather difficult and fancy and also the deepfrying part is not something I would do voluntarily. I do like deepfried food, a lot actually ;-) but the mess it makes in your kitchen and the afterwards feeling you have of "being a member of the bomb-squad", well not really my favourite. But I just did it this time, deepfried, made a huge mess and cleaned it all!! ;-) :-D
