Godfather night. That's right, my friends and I decided to throw a get together and have it be Godfather themed. I really can't take credit for this at all. I have never seen the godfather, but my friend's Katie and Michael came up with the idea and since I just love to cook so much, I offered to host.
I was just in Boston and Bri and I had a lovely evening in the north end complete with good Italian food, lots of wine, and cannoli from Mike's Pastry.
Mike's has amazing cannoli! Since being there, I've wanted to try my hand at making some of my own. I figured that cannoli would be the perfect treat for Godfather night! However, I just didn't have time to make the shells and go through all the hassel associated with that. So, I decided to use sugar cones! I know it's not authentic, but it's easy and it's going to be perfect for our dinner party!
