For our interpretation of this classic Tuscan dessert, we cover the dome -- sponge cake filled with sweetened whipped cream, fresh raspberries, toasted hazelnuts, and bits of toffee -- with chocolate ganache, and then spoon creme anglaise over each beautifully molded slice.

Italian Trifle with Marsala Syrup: In Italy, Fabio Trabocchi makes this dessert with Alchermes, a bright-red cinnamon-scented liqueur rarely seen in the States. The Sicilian fortified wine Marsala is a good substitute: It has a subtler color but a similarly spiced flavor, perfect for drenching squares of soft sponge cake layered with vanilla-infused pastry cream.
