The so-called "cupcakes" are small "gems" of almond paste filled with orange or mandarin preserves decorated in such a festive and colorful way that just looking at them will brighten the day. These exquisite sweets have ancient origins since they belonged to the pantries of the noble Sicilian families of the past. The name was given by the fact that these desserts, precisely, once prepared, are kept for long periods in the pantry called in ancient times "riposto" or closet. It is, therefore, sweets to be kept in the pantry and to be offered to unexpected visiting guests.
