Lemon and Almond Streamliner Cake

This months Cake Slice Bakers selection is "Lemon and Almond Streamliner Cake". This recipe called for almond paste which I made using the recipe from "Taste of Home". Never had I used this in any of my baking, which made me a little nervous. It was super easy to make, and the flavor is pretty amazing! Loved it!

The cake was pretty easy to make. I honestly didn't like the lemon custard, which made me super disapointed because I love lemon desserts. The cake had a nice tender crumb, and think that it would have been better glazing it with a lemon glaze.

I'm going to have to give this dessert a second chance tweaking the custard a little.
