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.

Your cake looks like the one in the book!

Sorry that you did not like the lemon custard though.

Looks beautiful. I wasn't ambitious enough to tackle the almond paste, so I'm sitting this one out.

Anabel, this is a gorgeous cake! Your custard is just perfect- I'm with Emily- it looks like the one in the book, if not better!

Great job! Looks sooo good! I am sorry the lemon custard wasn't to your liking :( hopefully our next cake will remove the bitter taste from this one? ;)

Sorry that you didn't like the custard. A lemon glaze sounds wonderful with this cake!
Your cake looks quite lovely though.

Even though you didn't like your custard I wish I could reach into your picture and take a spoonful - it looks so creamy and luscious. I agree with the others, your cake looks just like the one in the book.

Anabel, it's a pity you didn't like the lemon custard. Psst, even without the lemon curdy custard, the cake is still delish! Your cake looks very inviting!
