Place cannoli tube across the corners of the square. (Cannoli tube should be 8 inches long and 1 inch in diameter). First fold one corner around the tube, then the other and press together. Fry in deep fat, one at a time, until dark golden brown. Remove cannoli carefully and let cool before filling.
