About this recipe: This is an elegant cake to serve during Christmastime. An almond based sponge cake is glazed and decorated with almonds and festive-shaped marzipan.
This cake was delicious! I didn't decorate it, I just made a plain almond cake and topped it with the glaze. I added a little almond and vanilla extract to the glaze. Since I read the review that said the cake was dry, I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream. I cooked it in a silcone bundt pan that I got for Christmas (the first time I used it), so it seemed to cook slower. It needed the full hour but it browned nicely and was moist and delicious. My guests loved it!! - 31 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is wonderful. The almond pound cake comes out perfect. - 29 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very pretty pound cake but it needed some more flavor. Probably adding a teaspoon of salt and maybe some almond flavoring would help. - 20 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
