From semifreddo eggs to classic Italian Easter cakes, award-winning, luxury gelato producer Badiani will become your personal Easter Bunny, delivering delightfully delicious and unique Pasqua treats direct to your doorstep, whether you’re living in London or further afield.
Colomba – classica £28 / dark chocolate £30
Serves (8). Available for UK nationwide delivery.
For Italians, La Colomba is to Easter what the Panettone is to Christmas – a traditional cake that goes back centuries and a must-have on any Pasquatable. Like its Christmas counterpart, the Colomba’s dough is made of flour, fresh eggs, butter, and natural yeast giving it a deliciously sweet and fluffy texture.
Badiani’s handcrafted classica version is studded with zesty candied orange peel while the dark chocolate option contains decadent dark chocolate chips throughout. Both cakes are topped with crunchy almonds and sugar sprinkles for some extra bite and finished in the iconic dove shape that gives the cake its name.
Semifreddo Eggs – Single £4 / Egg Box (6) £20
Available for London delivery only.
Sure as eggs is eggs, you won’t have cracked open an Easter treat quite like this before! Badiani’s wonderful Semifreddo Eggs take the shells of real hen’s eggs and fill them with either creamy mascarpone or rich gianduia semifreddo.
Choose a single one as a decadent individual delicacy, or buy a colourful egg box full to delight friends and family as an eggstra special Easter Sunday surprise.
Colomba Gelato – (£4.80-£6.30 for cups/cones) or £20-£32 for takeaway boxes
Being award-winning artisans at heart, Badiani’s master gelato maker has been busy in his secret lab, distilling the taste of a traditional Italian Easter into a single scoop.
The limited edition Colomba flavour brings together the sweet, zesty lightness of the traditional Colomba cake into creamy gelato form – the perfect scoop to have sitting on top of one of the delicious freshly-made crêpes or waffles you can order in any of Badiani’s 9 London shops.
