I was wondering if anyone had a tried and true recipe for an almond flavored cake. I have found some online but am a little nervous about baking a recipe unseen and untried. I want to make an almond cake with raspberry filling and with a cream cheese frosting. (Will take suggestions for the frosting too.)
This is for my mother-in-law's 83rd birthday and we are giving her a surprise party next Saturday. She is absolutely a wonderful lady and I want to bake something outstanding. Any recipes are greatly appreciated!!!
Also, we are going to have a cookout with hotdogs and sliders. If there are any recipes for starters we can set out while the grill is warming up, I would appreciate that too!!!!!!! (we are going to have bbq beans, cole slaw, potato salad, deviled eggs) I just want this to be the best day in the world for her. She deserves it!!!!!!!!!
