A frozen almond extravaganza, this ice cream cake was inspired by Good Humor's Toasted Almond Bar: Almond cake layers are brushed with amaretto syrup and have vanilla ice cream and sugared almonds between them; the icing is whipped cream, coated with cake crumbs and more almonds.
This cake was delicious. I am new to baking so I followed this to the letter, including blanching and cleaning the almonds! It wasn't easy but if you took it slowly and paid attention to the recipe it was certainly doable. And it was well worth the effort.

This is my husband's favorite cake. I make it for him every year for his birthday. The hardest part is the almond sponge cake it's not for beginners, but if you can get that down it's delicious. You must use the right cake pan size.
