This beautiful and enticing cake features a white icing that recalls the traditional Italian "colomba", an Easter specialty. Thanks to skillful leavening and baking, it's well developed and has a nice color. The pistachio dough makes for a subtle sponginess and aromatic sensations that prove decisive but delicate on the palate. The texture is soft, silky and easy to chew, all enlivened by craft candied cherries. The combination of black cherries and pistachios makes the difference.
