I have made this several times. I also used lemon instead of almond, and some yellow cake coloring. Made a lemon glaze on top. I have also made it with sprinkles in it. That makes a pretty cake too. The regular cake, I have made a strawberry short cake. I tried using sugar instead of flour in my cake pan, that way it makes it own glaze. This is a great basic cake. There are so many ways you do with is cake. It is delish. Sandra Cox, Henderson, Texas.......
