When you are making cannoli filling, use whole milk ricotta and drain in cheesecloth overnight or longer. I usually add mascarpone, confectioners sugar, chopped bittersweet chocolate, and a little amaretto or almond extract. Vanilla extract would work as well. Good luck!!!

I’d buy some canolis from the baker and print out a mushroom pic to tack on top haha! I have trained Darling Husband to have low expectations.

you can bake cake in a pyrex bowl to make a half round shape. may need extra batter depending on the soze of your bowls.

@UpstateCait:  Have you tried looking for a mario mushroom-shaped cake pan at a party store?  Years ago I bought one in the shape of Garfield.  Or you could consider cupcakes decorated to look like the mushrooms.  Although I have no idea what  a cannoli cake is like inside, so maybe that wouldn’t work.

@KatyElle:  I’m with you. I’d just get a bunch of cannolis, stand them up like an asparagus cake, tie them together, and probably ignore the mushroom part. Lol. Whatever you do, take a picture and post it!

I have no advice because I am terrible at baking things that look pretty. But can you send me a piece? Because that sounds seriously delicious!! Your Darling Husband is lucky!
