These Sicilian sweets are typical of the humble countryside of the hinterland and were prepared during the Easter period: without almonds, pistachios or candied fruit, without the luxuries that flourished on the tables of the nobility, but loaded with symbols and that special art of decoration that distinguishes so many great masters without names. In Palermo, the puppets took the form of animals, men or women, in the Catania area they were shaped like doves, in south-eastern Sicily simple baskets of short pastry were curled into roses and plaits, creating colourful sculptures for one of the most popular Easter sweets in Sicily.
