Where can I find amazing Itallian Cassata Cake (Cannoli Cake)??

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the Manhattan Chowhound site... I used to be in Chicago. Anyway, I went to a friends wedding years ago and their wedding cake was a Cannoli cake.

So here I am years later STILL thinking about this cake. What I have learned from my web search is that it is also called an Italian or Sicilian Cassata cake. What I also have learned is that there are many many Italian bakeries in this large city but I have no idea if they have this cake or if it’s worth going to buy it.

Could you please suggest where I can buy this cake? I'd prefer Manhattan but I don't mind travelling off the beaten path for something amazing!

Oh yeah - hopefully their cake doesn't have those bits of dried fruit in it.... Ferrara has this and I hear that's kind of gross and it wouldn’t be the cake I dream about.

Thanks so much!
