Zuccotto is an Italian dessert with origins in Florence. Zuccotto is a semi-frozen, chilled dessert made with brandy, cake and ice cream. It can be frozen, then thawed before serving. This dessert is traditionally made in a special pumpkin-shaped mold (Zuccotto means “little pumpkin” in Italian). It is widely believed to have been inspired by the dome of Florence’s duomo (the city’s main cathedral). Others allude to its shape as closely resembling a cardinal’s skullcap or zucchetto.
