If you participate in the St Agata's day festivities, you certainly will not miss these little delicacies. The little cakes are made of ricotta cheese, chocolate and a candied cherry to finalize the look of St Agata's breast. The legend has it that her breasts were tortured, and that is exactly why they are celebrated on this particular day.
