    I just baked the cake. It is beautiful. I have it wrapped to sit, but I couldn't help but try it. Even before the three days have passed it is absolutely delicious. You can definitely play with the fruit combination which is nice too. I did not blend the almonds and fruit into a paste as I like the fruit and almonds whole and it still turned out perfectly :)
