Description

A smart and tasty way to repurpose leftover colomba (Easter) cake, this recipe calls for soaking the cake in liqueur and milk before adding ricotta and cinnamon. Once they're shaped into walnut-sized balls, the boozy orbs are coated in cocoa and garnished with a slice of fresh strawberry. They'll need a few hours in the refrigerator to firm up before indulging so plan to make them in advance.

    1. Cut the almonds off the top of the cake and cut the cake into small pieces. Soak the cake with the liqueur and a few tablespoons of milk, and work it together with your hands. The mixture should be firm and uniform.
