Almond Cake with Raspberry Buttercream
If you love almonds, the smell of almonds, you will LOVE this cake. I'm not a baker and I'm not very good at it. I prefer cooking a meal. Partly because when cooking a meal, there are no hard rules on how much condiments or seasoning you can put.
You can cook based on your preference. if you like spicy, add more spice if you like salt then add more salt. Weather you add more or less, as long you you stay in a range, the meal will taste great. In baking on the other hand... everything has to be EXACT or else you can really ruin it.
If you are feeling lazy, don't worry! the cake itself is delicious so don't feel like the raspberries will make a ton of difference. I is definitely good with it but the cake itself is the star of this recipe.
The reason why I made a filling was because Mitchell loves raspberries. He likes the cake with or without the frosting but he prefers it with but I prefer it without.
This is so moist and so delicious. I even had it for breakfast! It's almost like a pound cake. It's light tasting, and moist. I love it. I also think that the taste gets better and better each day.
It looks good in every angle! Trust me it taste as good as it looks!
