Making this cake was a time for me to go back in time.
I was twenty-something years old, and it was the summer of 1990. It was my first trip to Europe and my first trip to Italy. I was going to finally meet my extended Italian family - Great aunts, uncles, cousins, my grandparent’s siblings both set of grandparents had over 10 brothers and sisters, so it was a very, long visiting trip.
It was an exciting time for my twenty-year old self.
