Mortadella cake

Preamble: Mortadella is a large italian pork sausage, flavored with spices, including whole black pepper and pistachios. It is a typical product of the city of Bologna and it is really tasty.
My husband does not like cakes and sweets in general and this is obviously crushing my “baking pride” : ) He often says “Darling, your cakes are really lovely but I would rather prefer something savory like a sliced Mortadella…” Here you are, my darling, a mortadella, 41 years seasoned like you, to celebrate your birthday!!! Thank you for reading, looking and sharing a smile ;-)
