Tutti Frutti is an Italian delicacy prepared from roasted or dried sliced fruit that has been stored. To make it more visually appealing, the fruit is often brilliantly colored with various dyes, and it can be used in a variety of ways. Tutti Frutti is traditionally used in ice cream and confections such as crumb cake.
