Torta di Biscotto di Nozze


The preparation of the “Torta di Biscotto di Nozze” is by far one of the most important jobs of all in Italian weddings. Members of the family prepare biscotti for weeks for that important day. Layers of different biscotti are arranged in a pyramid and decorated with icing covered with "Confetti" and ribbons - it sits in a place of honor on the main table.

If it were me, and I were the bride, I'd grab this and the groom and squirrel up in a hide-away with a thermos of espresso until after the honeymoon or when the plate was empty.

When we have weddings in our family, we actually make a smaller one for the bridal party to enjoy in the rooms where they are getting dressed or to take home. We don't forget them.


 


Thanks,
