After more than 30 years of working in an office environment, Dianne Giovine was looking for a career that offered her an outlet for her creative talents. After trying out a few options, Dianne took a cake decorating class at a local community center. She learned to make her first frosting rose, and she was hooked!
As with many home-grown businesses, what started as a hobby has turned into a full-time business and passion for Dianne. Her first customers were friends and relatives, and her business grew by word of mouth. When she started to receive orders from referrals of friends, she decided it was time to build a second kitchen in her home and become licensed. The rest, as they say, is history.
The Holy Cannoli Vision
Dianne’s favorite part of owning her business is establishing a rapport with each bride and groom. They initially taste her cakes while planning their special day, but when they see and taste what she creates for their wedding day, they continue to order from her for every family occasion thereafter. They recommend her services to friends and business associates. Many customers say she will always be part of their family celebrations through her desserts!
Holy Cannoli Sweet Shoppe specializes in custom wedding cakes and made-to-order desserts. Dianne will make cakes for any occasion, and loves the challenge of creating a design that is unique and special for her clients. In addition to cakes, Holy Cannoli offers more than 20 varieties of cookies (each made from a different recipe), and a large line of pastries.
