Cannoli ... first try

I made my first (not quite the last) attempt at Cannoli (evening of the macarons... cooking Sunday!)  I had finally purchased some cannoli tubes in Melbourne, in between meetings, and had my heart set on trying these delightful treats.
I found a Gourmet Traveller recipe which used a chocolate/marsala pastry and a pasta machine for rolling out.
Now, I was disappointed with the pastry... quite fragile and easy to burn, and just didn't crisp up like I wanted.  Cooking these pastries is also a bit tricky....  Also the filling was just not right... next time, I think I'll do chocolate custard.
Stay posted for the my next attempts.
