Almond Cake

Judy Wisniewski


We were having my parents for dinner, my mom loves this almond cake, I asked my 15 year old daughter to help out. She made the cake and was the cake decorator, after it was done she said " mom, aren't you going to take a picture and share my cake on your food site?" . "Of course" I said, needless to say the decorating skills are not great.
