These sweet little buns are a traditional speciality of the town of Bagnara Calabra in the province of Reggio Calabria. They are made out of sponge cake, sandwiched together with custard and glazed with white icing, finished off with a halved red glacé cherry placed rather provocatively in the middle, which is why they are sometimes called tette di monaca, or nun’s breasts!!
