Can't you just imagine this lovely cake set out by your tree and stockings hung by the fireplace just waiting for Santa to arrive ? I have been collecting recipes for at least 60 years plus! This BLUE DIAMOND RECIPE and picture was cut out of a magazine, maybe 20-30 years ago.It is nice and moist cake and keeps well. It was called: The Queen of Holiday Cakes. Please enjoy this: ALMOND SHERRY CAKE. I did, and now you can.
