The sweet roses of Isabella d'Este: "Torta delle Rose"

A bouquet made with soft roses of pastry and buttercream, known as "Torta delle Rose" ("Cake of Roses") is one of the signature-dishes in the Mantuan gastronomy.
A story goes about the origins of this delicious dessert: it is said that the cake was first created on the occasion of the marriage of Isabella d'Este and Francesco II Gonzaga.
Although we have not any document, which validates this legend, every pastry-chef in Mantua will tell you that this cake is connected with the Renaissance.
