  • About

These small, soft cakes are found in every shop in Siena along with the traditional panforte. They are baked on sheets or individual discs of rice paper, which is trimmed around the cake when it is cooked and eaten with the small cake. If you do not have rice paper, line your baking tray with a piece of baking paper. When cooled, simply transfer from the baking paper to a tin.
