|Almond Cake with Slivered Almonds and Marscapone Whipped Cream|
|Almond Cakes in their "Hurri-Cakes" incarnation|
The first time Andrew made this magnificently moist, indescribably rich almond-to-the-core cake, it was one of two birthday cakes he provided for a friend’s very Big Birthday. The second cake was a Chocolate Devil’s Food cake with Chocolate filling. The ultimate complement he was paid was by our friend Peter, an inveterate chocoholic if there ever was one. Peter said, upon tasting its almond companion, “I never thought almond would trump chocolate but this one does”. It is that good. And there’s a story behind getting the recipe that’s a lot of fun too.
