Today "sideboard sweets" are small works of art which can be tasted with a simple gesture as one does with a candy: but these original small desserts are by far more tasteful than candies . These sweets are as precious as once of course, but now they are for everybody, in fact after centuries they are no more an exclusive delight of noble people and are on everybodyís table.
