  1. I also love the taste of almond. I usually add almond extract to my pound cake to give it an extra kick. I am definitely saving this recipe for my next family dinner! Thank you!

  2. Not only your family, I love the smell and taste of almond extract, as well as my mother, for us is a must have almonds at home. I will bake this cake for her, I'm sure she will thank you very, very much.

  3. Does the cake need to be completely cool before you pour the icing on top? And can the cake be stored in the fridge for later serving? I'm curious to know if I can make this a day in advance of a party. It sure looks very yummy!

  4. yes the cake does need to be completely cool before pouring on the frosting. The cake can be stored in the fridge for later serving! Just cover it before putting it in! Let me know how it turns out for you!

  5. Is the frosting warm or cool when it's spread on the cake? Just wondering why you would have to make it during the last few minutes of baking, if the cake has to be completely cool before frosting it
