According to Wiktionary, the singular is either cannolo (Italian) or cannolu (Sicilian).
I checked a few other sources and it looks to be that way. I've sent a message to Etymonline to let them know. Good catch.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

Ye gods and goddesses! We have the makin’s of a horse race!

The wik has it as a singular flat out.
Etymonline’s entry suggests cannola is Italian only
(and not for the pastry).
And the OED admits solely of the plural.

I’m tellin’ granma!
