Little Easter bloomy dove

From “uovo di Pasqua (Gianni Rodari)” [Easter egg (Gianni Rodari)]

Dall’uovo di Pasqua è uscito un pulcino
di gesso arancione col becco turchino.
Ha detto: “Vado, mi metto in viaggio
e porto a tutti un grande messaggio”.
E volteggiando di qua e di là
attraversando paesi e città
ha scritto sui muri, nel cielo e per terra:
“Viva la pace, abbasso la guerra”.


Every  Easter I remind of this poem by Gianni Rodari that I  read many times when I was a child …

To celebrate this important Christian holiday I thought I’d fill an Italian Easter dove cake portion with almond gelato and orange blossom .

If you have many guests You could also cut the dove cake into slices and arrange them on a plate, placing each slice with a scoop of  gelato (home-made italian ice cream) on the side.



  • 1 small dove per person
  • Almonds taste Gelato and orange blossom


½ l. milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. sugar (if available, replace 50 gr. of sugar with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of almonds paste
3 drops of orange blossom


Mix all dry ingredients together, then add milk and cream and continue  mixing well.

Pour everything in a saucepan  and bring the mix up to 85 ° C  (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.

Allow the emulsion to cool down  then add the almond paste and orange blossom  stirring constantly.

Stir for about 30/40 min and let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .

  • a few pieces of almonds


Cut the dove cake sideways and remove some crumb to create some space for gelato filling.

Arrange 2 gelato balls on the dove cake and decorate with some pieces of almonds .

Happy Easter!
