    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Be prepared everyone will be asking you for this recipe after they try it! the cake can be made without the almond extract but I think it is better with it.

    12. 12
      Place the pans on a wire rack to cool.
    13. 13
      Run a dinner knife around the edges of each layer, and invert each onto a rack, then invert them again onto another rack so layers are right side up.

      Awesome recipe. I used rum extract instead of almond, made into cupcakes, filled with pineapple curd, frosted with whipped frosting, sprinkled toasted coconut on top, put a paper umbrella in, and wah lah....pina colada cupcakes!!!

      Thankyou for this amazing recipe, l followed everything except the almond extract which l subsituted for coconut. The filling l followed pretty much too except less sugar and added canned diced pinapple, actually l whipped some cream up and added that too, good texture and easy to spread and stack the other layer. The frosing l kind of made my own,,Whipped up the cream, added some coconut vanilla and sugar. Did this by eye so l cant give measurments. I do recomende is whipping the cream first and them adding the rest by taste. Thanks for submiting, the cake is for my parents anniv and l will update reveiw when they taste it..
