The dessert has 1,048 calories per serving, while the entire Cannoli Bazooka clocks in at a whopping 20,960 calories

Caruso and his team created a custom large cannoli shell to hold everything together, and now offer the dessert in three standard flavours.

‘We have chocolate, vanilla, and ricotta, and we also custom-make flavours like blueberry. We’re open to creating new flavours for our customers all the time,’ he said.

To top it all off the dessert is dusted with icing sugar and then decorated to fit any occasion with flowers and ribbons.

Cannoli Bazookas have been ordered for everything from birthdays and corporate events to baby gender reveals and first communions.

‘We give new ideas to customers for their Cannoli Bazooka and like to create custom versions of it depending on what the client wants,’ Caruso said.

The standard Cannoli Bazooka costs $150, while a mini version with 20 cannoli pastries inside costs $65.

Pasticceria Caruso also offers a cannoli tower, complete with 100 cannoli, for $300.

The dessert has been a huge hit with customers, and now the bakery is doing up to 50 a week.

Since the dessert has gone viral, Pasticceria Caruso has had orders from all over the globe.

Caruso said it was a huge hit in New Jersey, where one man said he would pay for shipping so he could get his hands on the Cannoli Bazooka.

Laura also made sure to credit the patisserie who made the sensational o unicorn cake which was seen taking pride of place in her photograph.

The beauty wrote: ‘And about that cake! Pasticceria Caruso made the most perfect unicorn. sensation!’

The cake seems to be the must-have birthday treat for celebrity offspring, with WAG Kyly Clarke also opting for a similar confection for her own daughter’s recent birthday.

Talented Kyly was seen festooning the cake with treats ahead of her tot Kelsey-Lee’s second birthday a fortnight ago.

A Sicilian favourite, these ‘little tubes’ of fried pastry dough are filled with rich cream and for this giant version, Giuseppe has opted for a selection of ricotta, vanilla, chocolate, and for added sugar, included profiteroles in the centre of the shell. For those who prefer more intimate engagements, there’s also a smaller version.
