Colomba is an Italian Easter cake topped with sugar and almonds and shaped as a dove ("colomba" in Italian). Many versions exist nowadays; this version by Fiasconaro is the traditional one.

Fiasconaro was founded in Castelbuono, Sicily in 1953 by Mario Fiasconaro. Mario started out as an ice-cream maker and pastry chef, and his first great masterpieces were mountains of profiteroles. His three sons, Fausto, Nicola and Martino, began learning the art of pastry when they were children. Today, the three brothers still lead the company.

Colomba is delicious on its own but it can also be served with berries, spreads, cream or chocolate on top. Perfect as an after-dinner dessert, it can also be enjoyed for breakfast or as a snack with some tea.
