If you follow Marianne's directions, you'll find this almond cake recipe is one of the moistest, most delicate cakes you've ever tasted. The cake has a slight almond flavor and the frosting is rich and thick. It's super simple made with simple ingredients most bakers have on hand. Very yummy! The Test Kitchen
