Cassata siciliana also known as Cassata alla Siciliana refers to a traditional sweet from the province of Palermo, Sicily ( Italy). It is similar to the French gateau, and consists of pound cake moisted with kirschwasser or an orange liqueur and layered with a ricotta, candied peel, and chocolate filling, similar to cannoli cream. Most variants are also covered with a shell of marzipan or chocolate frosting.

Cassata siciliana is pronounced "kahs-sah see-chee-lyah-nah"
