Delicious mimosa cake!
Delicious mimosa cake!

La Festa delle donne (‘Women’s Day’) is celebrated on 8 March each year.  The symbol of the festival is the mimosa blossom which festoons the shops and restaurants.  Many women wear a spray of mimosa on their clothing.  Usually, the women go out together for a lunch or dinner. Dessert is traditionally Mimosa cake – a wonderful cake layered with  creme patisserie and pineapple, then covered in whipped cream and fine cake crumbs that (vaguely!) resemble the mimosa blossom.
