  1. mmmmm love raffaello candy so good, i gotta give this cake atry. thanks for sharing

  2. Can you not add liquor to this recipe? I don’t cook or bake anything with wine or liquor.

    • Delightsofculinaria says:

      Yes Valya, you can skip that part.( I mentioned that you can replace with almond extract). B ut note…any extract still has alcohol.

  3. Very delicious cake, made it last night except I added lil bit of butter in the cream. Im having some with coffee as I type! thank you, I’ll recommend this cake to everyone:)

  4. Hi, can I substitute evaporated milk with something else? I can’t find this milk.

    • Delightsofculinaria says:

      Hi Karol, I honestly didn’t try without evaporated milk, but I think best thing to do is just add more condensed milk and heavy cream.

  5. Ok, thank you :)

  6. This is on my to do list for my sons birthday party. I hope it will come out good.
    Definitely, will come back with the feedback…
