FROM THE BOOK: Scialo Bros. Bakery creme cupcakes in “Lidia’s Italy in America” book by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich for Chef Secret. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK: “At Scialo Brothers Bakery in Rhode Island, we found trays upon trays of little chocolate-covered spheres. I thought they were some version of a cassata (a Sicilian domelike cake stuffed with ricotta cream–see page 318), but instead they were individual Boston cream pies.”
