This would have been delicious if baking powder and baking soda weren't omitted from the recipe! Go find a recipe from another site.

This cake is best made a day or two ahead. It gets better and better! My family LOVES marzipan, and says this tastes like that wonderful almond confection - YUM!

I was worried that this cake was going to be too flat with no baking powder, but it turned out perfect. It is simple, but tastes amazing. The almond flavor was even stronger the next day and tasted great. We will absolutely have this cake again. I didn't have time to make the frosting this time. I just used ready-made frosting. I think it's easy to make variations on this cake like using orange or lemon zest.
