      My Italian grandfather (Nonno) requested a birthday cake last fall that had grapes, strawberries and pineapple. Nothing came to mind, but with a little research, I found this perfect recipe! He must have had this dish or something similar in Italy before, because he seemed to have it in mind. This is simply delicious! I highly recommend it! I tried to be a little creative with the way I configured everything. I used a cookie cutter to make stars for the side of the dish. Since fruit is coming back into season now, I made another one for Easter this year. The design for this included bunnies and flowers. Once again, everyone loved it and it didn't last long! I've added pictures of how both turned out. Hope you like them and that maybe they inspire you to be a little creative as well!
