Mr. Cannoli Brings Traditional Italian Desserts HomeJul 20th, 2013 | By Jay Long | Category: In Your Town
Mr. Cannoli, better known as Scott Wilkinson, grew up locally watching his grandmother bake in her kitchen and that’s where he got his first taste, literally. “My grandmother Louise taught me the art of baking, I used to sit and watch her bake as a child, just so I could lick the bowl”, Wilkinson remembered fondly. He was able to take those early day lessons along with the skills he learned by attending the Culinary Institute of America to now bring you some of the tastiest Italian desserts you can find.
Mr. Cannoli’s range of Italian desserts consists of Gelato ( Italian Frozen Dessert), 22 flavors of Italian Ice, the all new wine sorbet, cakes for all occasions, wedding cakes, pies, tiramisu, Italian style cheesecake (cream cheese, sour cream, ricotta cheese), Belgium chocolate cheesecake, impastata cheesecake, Italian cookies, homemade butter cream frosting and of course, the trademark Cannoli cream with his very own Cannoli shell recipe, which are available empty or filled and they come in all shapes sizes from the traditional mini and large to super sized (24 inches long). You can even get your own signature Guinness world record 7 foot long cannoli shell. The Cannoli cream is available in freezable containers starting at 1.5 pounds.
Mr. Cannoli’s Italian ices can be found in several Hudson Valley locations. If you attend a Hudson Valley Renegade game at ‘The Dutch’ this season be sure to grab one of these refreshing treats at the ballpark. Those going out to enjoy the Town of Newburgh community day, scheduled for August 16 at Cronomer Park, can look for the Mr. Cannoli’s ices under the Kiwanis Club tent. And if you’ll be attending Town of New Windsor’s community day on August 24, Mr. Cannoli will be there helping you cool down. But don’t worry, if you can’t get out to those events, Mr. Cannoli’s ices are sold in several area locations, including, Prima Pizza in Cornwall, Valley Farms of Rt 94 in New Windsor across from Woodlawn Cemetery, Cracolici’s on the Green in Liberty, Planet Pizza in Monroe and Peace, Love and Ice Cream in Rock Hill.
Mr. Cannoli set a world record for largest cannoli on August 27, 2010 with an absolute mammoth of a creation. The shell measured in at 7 feet long and once filled with Mr. Cannoli’s trademark cannoli cream, it tipped the scale at 123 pounds. The record has not been touched since. But, on Thursday August 22, 2013, Mr. Cannoli is going to set out to break his own world record at Dutchess Stadium, home of the Hudson Valley Renegades.
