The other week we visited Florence, and I was completely taken in by the chocolate Easter egg displays. Besides huge, chocolate filled Easter eggs being popular gifts for the holiday, the Italians also give each other a particular Easter cake. They actually call it ‘Easter pizza’ but it has nothing in common with a pizza.
Packaging is everything and these cakes are just exquisitely wrapped. A feast for the eye, the heart, the soul and the mouth.
Look at these Easter Egg window displays.
Only in Italy, only in Florence!!!!
I also want to share with you a few pictures of the candy store itself. As you can tell , it’s an establishment of refinement, located in the old town of Florence. If you click on the image, you can see the larger version. Look at those amazing hand-painted ceilings!!! Beautiful.
Oh, and these handmade bonbons taste even better than they look.
