06.06.2019 By Brian Amick
Father’s Day and National Cannoli Day take place on the same day – Sunday, June 16. In celebration of those special events, St. Louis’ Piccione Pastry is offering exclusive DIY Maple Bacon Cannoli Kits during the month of June – as well as a free cookie for each father – on Father’s Day.
The DIY Kits make for a fun Father’s Day activity that fathers can share with their children. The sweet and savory kit ($25) includes 12 mini cannoli shells, a pastry bag of Piccione’s signature maple ricotta cannoli cream, and toppings such as candied bacon, powdered sugar, and mini chocolate chips.
“June 16th is one of our favorite days here at the Shop,” says Colleen McBryan, Piccione Pastry Chef. “Not only is it Father’s Day but it is National Cannoli Day. We invite everyone to stop by and treat Dad with a special gift this year full of bacon, authentic, Italian cannoli, and family fun. And, while you’re here, don’t forget to pick up some our most famous Crazy Cannoli only available for a limited time!”
Throughout the month of June, all Crazy Cannoli are available for $4 each or order five and get one free. The lineup includes Gooey Butter Cannoli, Chocolate Chip Cannoli, Strawberry Lemonade Cannoli, Milky Way Cannoli, Cinnamon Roll Cannoli, and many more.
